    First live pictures of Giant Squid



    In this photo released by Tsunemi Kubodera, a researcher with Japan's National Science Museum, a giant squid attacking a bait squid is pulled up by his research team off the Ogasawara Islands, south of Tokyo, on December 4, 2006. The research team, led by Kubodera, succeeded in filming the giant squid live, possibly for the first time, at the surface as they captured it off the remote island of Chichijima, which is about 600 miles (960 kilometers) southeast of Tokyo. About 24 feet (seven meters) long, the squid died in the process of being caught. The photo was made out of the video they filmed.

    Maybe calimari anyone? It would probably be the toughest stuff ya ever ate.But the smaller version- 12-13" in length are delectible, if cooked right.

    I suppose it died of decompression - they're deep dwellers.
    So greedy that it died rather than let go of supper.

    I wonder if it was snagged on that hook and couldn't get away in time?

    Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (2009).

    I'm kind of upset this giant squid didn't get a lead role in this film.
