It’s a Giant Squid…but it’s a Baby Giant Squid

giant-squid-video-capture-copy.jpgI realize this has already been on Drudgereport, but since the giant squid from Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea appeared in so many of my childhood nightmares, I couldn’t help but share this with you — the first video ever taken of a giant squid.  (You have to click on the link, not the picture.) 

Disappointingly, this is actually a juvenile giant squid, only about 10-12 feet long.  They can grow to 60 feet long.  The preserved, frozen carcass of a 22-foot adult giant squid can be found at the Melbourne Aquarium.
