So far the Giant Squid has been camera shy, but now explorers have done a difficult task. They got the Giant Squid on tape.
This was a joint effort by Japan Broadcasting Commission (NHK) and the US Discovery Channel, and the film was captured during an expedition off Japan’s Ogasawara archipelago. This video might answer a lot of questions that have intrigued the scientists.
To avoid bright lights that might scare the squid away, the camera uses a low dim red light.
