Eyes of a giant squid is the creepiest thing.

I've commented on this before, but I will so again, because I remembered that an encounter between a diver and a giant squid did occur on Christmas Eve in Toyama in 2015. The squid was, after a few hours of being observed, guided back out to the open sea, where it disappeared back into the depths. Basically, this scene you depicted here eventually happened.

I saw the video! I hope the squid was OK, pretty weird for it to head shoreward like that!

I think it was. It seemed fairly healthy. It probably entered the harbor to escape either cannibalism from one of its own kind or from a sperm whale. (And yes, Giant Squid have been found to be cannibals, a a 30-footer from Spain with sucker marks, bites in its fins and a missing eye indicates. See here for the full story and pictures: www.earthtouchnews.com/oceans/… )

Hi Abiogenisis would you be interested in doing the same piece but with a submersible instead of an aquanaut?  Check www.deepsubllc.com for pictures of the sub...

I'd love to be able to meet a giant or colossal squid in person. We're not in their prey range, so I'd be reasonably hopeful I'd come out unscathed.

You need to join the antarctic fishing fleet!

I agree, there are far too many humans.
