Giant Squid Revealed

Marine scientists have learned that they can seem more underwater in the ocean at extreme depths by actually turning out the lights. Amazing creatures, some horrifying in sight to a new eye, display their talents and are incredible in their ability to create bio luminescence. 80-90% of these deep sea creatures are able to generate their own light on their bodies and even as a smoke screen among other uses.

Oh yeah, and there are big giant hungry squid down their with eye balls bigger than our own heads! YEAH this is why nature rocks!

From the LA Times (squid image here):

“The squid caught on video is 9 feet long, but it is also missing its two longest tentacles. If those tentacles were still intact, the squid could have measured as much as 26 feet in length, Kubodera told the AFP.”
