Rather him than me.  I'd be swimming in the opposite direction if I saw that thing.  As fast as I could.  lol

  • How much do you don't see?

The largest I've heard of was 40 meters, over 110 feet I figure. But I think it was a squid. This one's pretty big though, I'd say at least 4 meters, or 7-8 if you count by the spread, not tip-to-head. Still one big eyeballer :passifier:

Wherever there's a problem, there's solutions.
Answers are found from a wide deep perspective, from opened mind's eyes.
From where good and bad stay silent and you hear the real cause and effect, and big picture.
Giving up is wasting your time, but also necessary to find the true cause you didn't find yet.
Staying in the path is necessary only when there's trueness in that path.

Yep me too. Reminded me of this video: 'Untamed and Uncut: Giant Octopus Attacks Diver'



Edit: freaky!

  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

That was a bit close for comfort :unsure2: Steve Leonard used to be in the TV vet's series among other things.
