The Oil Pit Squid is a mystery cephalopod, reported from Anderson, Indiana. Squidlike. Length, 6–8 inches. Diameter, 1 inch. Grayish-red color. Tentacles. Oil-emulsion pits containing antifreeze, stripper, oil, and chemicals used in manufacturing plastic automobile bumpers.

On November 15, 1996, workers cleaning out a sludge pit at the GMC Delphi Interior and Lighting plant in Anderson, Indiana, found many squid-like animals swimming in the toxic liquid.

One of the animals was caught and preserved in a jar, though it disappeared in December before officials could send it away for testing. No further specimens were found when the pit was inspected and cleaned on March 7 and 12, 1997.

Possible explanationsEdit

  • Speculation ranged from mutated earthworms to bizarre bacterial growth.
