A Monster From The Deep

Jules Verne will be smiling somewhere today as a group of Japanese scientists have gotten the first pictures of a living Giant Squid.

I wish I would be able to post a picture of the squid as it is truly an amazing picture. These wonderful creatures have been know to exist for a period of time as they occasionally wash up dead on a shore, and whales have been found with scars from fights with these creatures. The only negative is that during the retrieval of the equipment from the filming of the squid, on of it's tentacles was torn off. The squid will survive, but it will not re-grow the tentacle.

You have to love the reseach of the planet that results in these kinds of finds.
