The Giant Squid used to be a creature so mysterious that the only evidence of its existence was the dead carcasses that washed ashore – but not until now!
In a recent report, the Discovery Channel’s expedition, the team has caught the mythical creature alive on tape – this is the first time that the giant squid in its natural habitat has been successfully recorded.
According to press.discovery.com, “Discovery Channel and NHK have joined forces to undertake the most ambitious search ever mounted to find the greatest mystery of the deep, the giant squid.
With razor-toothed suckers and eyes the size of dinner plates, tales of the creature have been around since ancient times. The Norse legend of the sea monster the Kraken and the Scylla from Greek mythology might have derived from the giant squid.
This massive predator has always been shrouded in secrecy, and every attempt to capture a live giant squid on camera in its natural habitat, considered by many to be the Holy Grail of natural history filmmaking, has failed. Until now.”
