More architeuthis footage

Click on this to see longer, more raw footage of the recently filmed giant squid. It seems terribly weak, on the verge of death. It’s hardly moving its arms but you can see it jetting water through its siphon (under the mantle).

Did anyone see that two hour special called “Secrets of the Deep” which should have been called “Life of a Sperm Whale” except some executive said “we can’t put the word ‘sperm’ in the title of our show because idiots will giggle.” It was kind of neat, despite the blatant CGI, and not only did they talk about giant squid, but also it’s larger cousin, the colossal squid, AKA mesonychoteuthis.
