These two videos are a first. This footage, taken some months ago, is the first ever footage taken of the illusive giant squid. This deep sea cephalopod is renown for snacking on sperm whales and for their appearance in the classic book Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. As a young child, they were my favorite animal, so I'm very excited to finally see footage of them. They are truly remarkable, awe inspiring, and a little terrifying.
