some researchers have finally found a giant squid alive in its natural habitat. they found this amazing squid nearly 3,000 ft under the surface of the north pacific ocean. it was roughly 25 feet long! how cool is that? there was no video of the occurrence but they did get 500 or so photos during what was evidently quite a struggle between the scientists and the squid. it started to sound like a botched steve zissou adventure after i found out that the poor squid lost a tentacle in the struggle to hold the squid down. until now giant squid have only been found dead or dying. its amazing that it took so long to find one of these mythical creatures in the wild. heres a link to the national geographic article.
