It's my theory, that a sub-species of Architeuthis dux, lives in Lake Van, Turkey.

Giant Squids sure are neat creatures. Would love to see one in their natural habitat deep in the ocean. I am really amazed no-one has been able to do that as of yet.

Yeah, I wondered about the eye too. Sure that isn't an addition? If it is real then it is freaky looking.
The eye scares me more than anything else. Wonder what would happen with a big squid starring down a gray alien?

Nice pic. The eye looks strange though. Like it's photoshopped or something. May be it's just me.

To my knowledge there aren't any freshwater cephalopods, but I will look into it for you.
Illinois Fisherman Catches Octopus at Lake Conway
Mayflower (AP) - The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission says an Illinois fisherman caught a live octopus at Lake Conway.
John Mazurek of Glenn Ellyn, Illinois, caught the octopus on Monday when he saw it clinging to one of the gates at the lake's dam.
There is no explanation for how the octopus made it into the lake, but the commission said it is thought that the animal was kept in a home aquarium and when it grew too large someone dumped it into the lake.

I am unsure if this lake is fresh water, also I am not sure if an octopus is considered a cephalopod, however when I saw this news article it reminded me of your post...
