Giant squid filmed in the Pacific depths

Giant squid filmed in the Pacific depths 1

A science team has managed to capture footage of a giant squid in its natural habitat for the first time.
Researchers from Japan’s National Science Museum have succeeded in filming one of the most elusive creatures on Earth, the giant squid, 900m below the surface of the ocean in its natural habitat. Using a submersible vehicle, special cameras and a lot of patience the team recorded over 400 hours of footage across 100 missions to the depths before capturing one of the animals on film.
“It was shining and so beautiful,” said team member Tsunemi Kubodera. “With this footage we hope to discover more about the life of the species.” The video is due to be broadcast as part of a Discovery Channel documentary called “Monster Squid: The Giant Is Real” which will premiere on January 27th as part of its “Curiosity” series.

A team from Japan’s National Science Museum has captured what’s considered the first ever film footage of a giant squid in its natural habitat, about 900 metres below sea level.
