      Has anybody ever successfully kept any species of large squid alive in captivity (e.g., Humboldt squid)?

      Steve O'Shea (NZ teuthologist) has kept baby giant squid alive for varying short periods. Squid in general are difficult to keep in tanks - I think they get stressed easily, and they are very active and flighty - and they tend to be cannibalistic as well so shoals aren't usually possible anyway. Large squid like Humboldt's would I imagine be even more difficult than the smaller ones.
