MessageToEagle.com - For the first time ever a giant squid, measuring 10 feet has been caught on camera at a depth of a third of a mile.

The Japanese crew spent 400 hours in the submersible and carried out 100 missions in a project to film the giant squid, the world's largest invertebrate.

Eileen O'Neill, Group President of Discovery and TLC Networks, said: 'This ground breaking project features the very first-ever footage of a live giant squid in its natural habitat.'

Tsunemi Kubodera, of Japan's National Science Museum, described the discovery of the animal as a 'shining and so beautiful' moment.


A mysterious giant squad has been filmed for the first time.


"“All of us were so amazed at what it looked like. It looked carved out of metal. And it would change from being silver to gold. It was just breathtaking.” I wouldn’t want to run into it in a dark alley," said Eddie Widder, a marine biologist, who was part of the team that got the footage.
