Mythical Squid No More…Researchers Capture A Ginormous Squid On Camera

Seems like some fiction novels are becoming non fiction..

Apparently a “mythical” creature has been discovered by Russian researchers.  You hay or may not have heard stories about a giant squid.  Many cultures and plenty of American novels and sailors have spread stories about such a thing.  Now one has been caught on video and it is awesome.  Here is a bit more about the folklore that surrounds the finding:

During the 300 years spanning the 16th to the 19th century – the heyday of discovering new worlds and brutally colonising them – popular belief had it that the ocean harboured enormous sea monsters. From dragon-like sea creatures to colossal squids, like the mythical Kraken.

Are you ready to see this thing?  What would you do if you saw this thing while swimming?  Just kidding.

    I’m pretty sure that’s a colossal squid in that video not a giant squid there both scary big but the difference is in the length of the tenticals that and colossal squids are red where giants are a whitish in color both are exstreamly rare but the tell tale is the giant squid has tenticals longer then it’s body
