news icon rJapanese zoologists have made the first recording of a live giant squid, one of the strangest and most elusive creatures in the world. The size of a bus, with vast eyes and a querulous beak, Architeuthis has long nourished myth and literature. Until now, the only evidence of giant squids was extraordinarily rare - from dead squids that washed up on remote shores or got snagged on a long-line fish hook or from ships' crews who spotted the deep-sea denizen as it made a sortie near the surface.

I have to say I was one of the many relieved not to see that.

But I do think it's incredible that this type of marine life is out there. I like calamari.

I wanna see more pics!

giant squid rule....

actually, squid outnumber humans in total bio-mass, they grow exponentially every year and tuna is a natural predator (for regular squid) which we are removing from the environment allowing squid to flourish... mabye one day they will develop intelligent brains and then they'd build "land suits" and INVADE!!! OMG, we gotta start eating the b******* before they have a chance!

The hope was that a camera would squirt out the pureed genitals and a passing squid, driven into a sexual frenzy, would then mate with the lens - a project that, some may be relieved to hear, never came to fruition

fruition means it be real so the squid sex thing didnt happen but they did get video

Needless to say, I'm estatic. This is amazing! One of Earths most mysterious animals, finally captured on camera!

Oh, and giant squid tastes awful, due to the high levels of amonia in it's flesh.
