Steve O’Shea talking about suckers on end of the tentacles

Steve O’Shea is talking to the Discovery Team about the differences in giant and colossal squid tentacle clubs- the bits on the end of the squid’s tentacles.

Colossal squid have swivelling hooks, whereas this giant squid has suckers. The suckers are about 25mm across! The suckers have serrated teeth at the edge and can cut flesh.
