Giant Squid!

Screen Shot 2015-12-29 at 6.05.20 PM

Somehow this creature doesn’t look as ferocious as the one that attacked the Nautilus. This giant Squid (Architeuthis sp.) showed up in Toyama Bay, Japan. A lucky diver caught the action. Live Giant squid have only been captured on film or video a few times so this is a very rare occurrence. This one looks beat up to me with plenty of scars on the mantle and arms.  Unfortunately we don’t see a distant vantage point to view the long tentacles.
