A giant squid has been videotaped in its deep-ocean habitat for the first time.
This is an excerpt from Discovery Channel’s MONSTER SQUID: THE GIANT IS REAL, which premieres on January 27, 2013 at 8PM ET/PT as the season finale of CURIOSITY.
The scientists and filmmakers undertook 55 submersible dives, totaling 285 hours, some at depths greater than 3,000 feet, to capture this encounter with a giant squid, estimated to weigh 600 pounds.
