They Filmed a Live Giant Squid For the First Time, The Kraken Lives!
The same people who brought us Godzilla and Gamera (the Japanese) now bring us the kraken! These monstrous giant squids have been seen before but never alive. Shit’s crazy.
Researcher Tsunemi Kubodera had this to say:
It was shining and so beautiful. I was so thrilled when I saw it first hand, but I was confident we would because we rigorously researched the areas we might find it, based on past data. Researchers around the world have tried to film giant squid in their natural habitats, but all attempts were in vain before.
The giant squid was found in the depths of the Pacific Ocean by a team of three Japanese scientists crammed inside a research submarine for 400 hours and 100 missions. The team located the monster 9.3 miles (15 kilometres) east of Chichi Island, a small archipelago about 150 miles (241.4 kilometers) north of Iwo Jima.
