Video: Watch That Giant Squid Attacking A Submarine


Our friend Jonnypartys at The Scuttlefish found this video of the Architeuthis, the kraken filmed by Tsunemi Kubodera and his team after 400 hours in a research sub. It’s only a few seconds, but you can see the beast both peacefully floating and attacking the submarine.

The monster was kind of pissed off, but I don’t blame it. According to Kubodera, they live “a solitary existence, swimming about all alone in the deep sea. It doesn’t live in a group, so when I saw it, well, it looked to me like it was rather lonely.”

Single tear.

Size comparison.

The complete footage will be shown by the Discovery Channel for the season finale of Curiosity. [The Scuttlefish]
