This $1 value (S.G. #34) from The Australian Antarctic Territory's December 30, 1973 pictorial set of 12 stamps, depicts an oceanic struggle between a sperm whale and a giant squid (Architeuthis dux).

From Wikipedia, "Recent genetic research suggests that only one (giant squid) species exists...In 2004, Japanese researchers took the first images of a live giant squid in its natural habitat, and in July 2012, a live adult was first filmed in its natural habitat off Chichijima, Japan"

Here is the 50 drachma value (Sc #1618a) from Greece's March 2, 1988 set of five Marine Life stamps. Stamp depicts a brine shrimp (Artemia salina).
