Carey Walker and his fiancé were driving to Portsmouth Island last month during low tide when they spotted a red or diamond squid.

Walker said the squid weighed between 35 and 40 pounds.

After taking some pictures and video, Walker said he put it back in the water and it simply swam off.

Diamond squids can be found worldwide throughout tropical and subtropical waters.
