Myths & Legends: Noah’s Ark and the Giant Squid

Noah’s Ark

One of the most widely known Biblical stories is that of Noah’s ark. It tells the story of a man named Noah who is warned by God of an upcoming Flood that will kill every living creature.  He is ordered to build an ark which will float on the flood waters. Noah builds a grand ship and brings on it his family and at least two (one male and one female) of each animal. When God sends his flood every creature one the ark survives while the rest perish.  Here at PJ the transportation team has taken the name Noah’s Ark and is ready to provide safe transpotation to all those at the jamboree who need it.

Giant Squid

The giant squid is a deep-ocean dwelling squid. Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size due to deep-sea gigantism: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 m for females and 10 m for males (one of the largest living organisms). 

In 2004, Japanese researchers took the first images of a live giant squid. In June 2019, scientists Made a video of a giant squid in its deepwater habitat.

Its chief predator is the sperm whale. It is common to find circular scars from the suckers on or close to the head of sperm whales that have attacked giant squid.
