Friday Squid Blogging: Video of Live Giant Squid
Giant squid filmed swimming through a harbor in Japan:
Reports in Japanese say that the creature was filmed on December 24, seen by an underwater camera swimming near boat moorings. It was reportedly about 13 feet long and 3 feet around. Some on Twitter have suggested that the species may be Architeuthis, a deep-ocean dwelling creature that can grow up to 43 feet.
A few days later, a diver helped him get back out to sea. More amazing video at that link.
As usual, you can also use this squid post to talk about the security stories in the news that I haven’t covered.
And Happy New Year, everyone.
