It is believed to feed on prey such as large fish and other squid. The eye is 27 cm (10.63 in) wide, with a lens 12 cm across. This is the largest eye of any known animal.

Jurassic Park: Builder

The Colossal Squid only appears in Jurassic Park: Builder, in the Aquatic Park. It is a limited edition animal, only available for a short time period.


  • The Colossal Squid isn't extinct. Therefore it is a plothole that the creature has to be cloned from DNA in Ice in Jurassic Park: Builder. However it may have been an extinct species.
  • The Colossal Squid along with the Horseshoe crab, Coelacanth, and Nautilus, and is the only non-extinct Jurassic Park attractions in the franchise to appear so far.
  • The Colossal Squid in Jurassic Park: Builder should have a wider mantle, but the game seemed to make it resemble the Giant Squid instead.
