Daily Tentacle: A Teaser for the First Footage of A Giant Squid in its Natural Habitat

Imagine What You'll Know Tomorrow

About a month ago the Discovery Channel announced that a group of its filmmakers, equipped with a submersible and some unfortunate bait, have captured the first footage of a living giant squid in its natural habitat in history. Since then, we’ve been waiting a they teased us with the knowledge of its existence. Okay, maybe I’ve been waiting, but then I was a kid who always inched with horrified fascination over to the darkest corner of the Hall of the Oceans in the Museum of Natural History to peer into the murky squid/spermwhale diorama to glimpse that battle of titans.

Anyway, the Week has found a Japanese program who got just a little bit of the footage as a teaser.
