Giant Squid Filmed for First Time

Scientists in Japan have captured on film, for the first time ever, footage of a living giant squid ( Architeuthis dux) in its natural habitat, in the depths of the ocean, over 600 meters below the surface.

Giant squids sightings are very rare because of the great depths at which they live. Previous video footage of giant squid has been in shallow waters, with the animal already dead.
