26 feet Giant Squid Filmed in Pacific Depths



We always knew that deep-sea monsters are for real but now we have a real live one captured on film. After around 100 missions, during which they spent 400 hours in a cramped submarine working with Japanese public broadcast network NHK and the US Discovery Channel, scientists from Japan's National Science Museum have managed to capture footage of an elusive 8 meters (26 feet) long giant squid that roams the depths of the Pacific Ocean.

According to Discovery Channel the three-man crew tracked the creature, thought to be "the genesis of the Nordic legend of Kraken, a sea monster believed to have attacked ships in waters off Scandinavia over the last millennium" around 15 km (9 miles) east of Chichi island in the north Pacific Ocean. Here are some snapshots from the video:
