First Giant Squid Captured in Wild (on Film, That Is) - New York Times

The holy grail of undersea filming has, for a long time, been to film a *live* giant squid.

It must come as a suprise to most to learn that while we know exactly what a giant squid looks like, it has never been seen in teh wild. Mostly due to the fact it 1/ is deep, man 2/ dies before being brought to the surface when caught in a net/hook/cray pot.
"This has been a mystery for a thousand years," said Richard Ellis, author of "Monsters of the Sea" (Knopf, 1994). "Nobody knew what they looked like in the wild. We only saw them dead. These images will open the door to more detailed study of their life."


So I am *excited* about seeing this video!
