I 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.
