A Colossal Catch
· The largest Colossal squid ever found -- weighing an estimated 990 pounds -- has been caught off Antarctica.
It took fishermen two hours to land the creature, which is more than 30 feet long.
The squid was eating a hooked toothfish when it was hauled from the ocean, a New Zealand fisheries official said, but did not survive. It was taken to New Zealand to be studied.
One of the most mysterious creatures of the deep, Colossal squid can descend to 6,500 feet and are aggressive hunters, scientists say. They can grow more than 40 feet long. Until now, the largest one found was about 660 pounds.
A Teensy Survivor · A baby barely longer than a pen when she was born last fall went home from the hospital this week.
Amillia Sonja Taylor weighed less than 10 ounces at her birth four months ago. She is now 4 1/2 pounds and 15 1/2 inches long -- "healthy and thriving," said a spokeswoman at Baptist Children's Hospital in Miami, Florida. Amillia has some medical problems, but they are not expected to last.
Amillia was born after spending less than 22 weeks inside her mom. Most babies who arrive that early do not survive. Usually babies are born after 37 to 40 weeks.
