  1. This is awsome! I love giant squid, and it's so neat to be able to see footage of a live one, instead of the pictures of dead ones that have washed up on beaches. I am kind of pissed that they injured it taking their pictures, though. Will it be able to survive without the tentacle, or grow it back at some point?

  2. Awesome, isn't it? The dead ones which have washed up have been larger, and certainly impressive… but the smaller giant squid alive beats that. The tentacle worried me too, as did the fact that the hours of pictures were in fact of the squid trying to free itself from the hook. I hope it will be able to survive, although I don't think squids can grow back severed tentacles.

  3. I could be wrong, but I think I've heard stuff about squid being fairly resilient. It may well be able to survive without the tentacle.

    Especially cool is that the same day some scientists found the first complete specimen of a colossal squid (think — even bigger). It was a good squid day, really. 🙂
