Scientists at Wellington's Ta Papa Museum defrosted and examined a colossal squid that was hauled from the Ross Sea in December.

New Zealand's TV3 said the squid is the second of it's kind to be caught by skipper, John Bennett.

"The squid came up on the line with its head down the depths as it was coming up, and all of a sudden alongside we had this beautiful perfect sample of a colossal squid," he said.

He caught his first colossal squid seven years ago. It weighed 500 kilograms (1102.3 pounds) and is also on display the the same museum, New Zealand media said.

Kat Bolstad from Auckland's University of Technology discovered that the squid is a female, weighing 350 kilograms (771.6 pounds), has eyes that are 35 centimetres (13.3 inches) across. Each arm measures over one metre (three feet, three inches) long with large suckers.

"It was just amazing, lots and lots of things we were hoping to see and some things we didn't expect to see which were great and really looking forward now to seeing what we can tell from the samples that we've taken," said Dr Bolstad.

The museum has yet to decide if this squid will be on public display.
