VIDEO: Elusive giant squid captured on film for first time

Posted January 10th, 2013 @ 6:03am

For hundreds of years, sailors and others have told of seeing huge squid alive and thrashing about the oceans. The giant squid now known scientifically as Architeuthis has been seen many times — but only dead as a doornail.

But now a team of Japanese researchers and a Discovery Channel crew have captured footage of the creature alive and kicking some 3000 feet below the waves. It's the first footage of the creature alive and in its normal habitat recorded anywhere in the world, and it's causing quite a stir.
