Dam you Jo, I gotta tend my garden, now you got me interested.
I read an account from a russian boat happenstancing on a great battle between a architeuthis and a sperm whale. Jules Verne could not have done better
Deep, deep down in the sea sleeps a giant architeuthis. He has a weird dream of darkness and deepness, about consuming the entire universe, and sometimes his arms roll in the sleep. Then floods and hurricanes take their way around the world, but the architeuthis isn't aware.
Once every twenty thousand years, when the roof of the sky has returned to its old position, he awakes and glides through the sea, hungry. He eats whales or giant sharks or other kalmars or whatever he can find. But don't be afraid, tonight, he will not awake, he will sleep for some thousend years or more.
