For those of you that are giant squid fans, you know that these little buggers have RARELY been seen live in the ocean. They have only been discovered after washing up dead on the coast. And much of the facts known about giant squids has been from research on their bodies.
Well, this past weekend divers off the coast of Japan finally captured the Giant Squid on camera. This 12-foot beast was seen “looking lively, spurting ink and trying to entangle his tentacles around me,” the diver told CNN.

Here's the video!

What do you all think about this awesome discovery?!

I can't stop inking about how awesome this is. ;)

Yeah, we don't have the technologies to figure out how they get so big in the deepest parts of the ocean! @WiviDemol it's crazy!
I have a small obsession with the Giant Squid. Love!!!
I found this too late. :( Account that had the video was deleted.
I think they were lucky to find such a curious baby, and luckier than they realize that it was only interested in "palling around" for a photo op... 😁 There's a reason for their ancient maritime reputations... 😉
(most people forget that in order to get that big down there, you'd have to be pretty smart & hyper sensitive, so its a good bet they're smarter than we are by eons)
