Live Giant Squid Filmed in the Wild for the First Time

The giant squid was found swimming at a depth of 2066 feet in the Pacific Ocean by a team of three Japanese scientists crammed inside a research submarine.

Approximate scale next to the Shinkai 6500, a famous 31-feet-long Japanese manned research submersible.

The video, filmed in high definition, will be shown by the Discovery Channel as part of its Curiosity TV show.

Meanwhile the Giant Squid's smaller cousin, the Humboldt Squid, is making a return appearance in the waters off Southern California......calamari anyone?

Wonder if you could get one on a fly rod?
