The sleeping giant

This is amazing. Imagine seeing one of these coming at you? I'd definitely fill my wetsuit/drysuit (delete where applicable). It would make for some awesome picture though.It was caught on film in the Pacific for the first time ever.

And updated with video footage below.


"This amazing sea creature is an Architeuthis. Or a Kraken, as the ancient vikings used to call it. We knew the kraken wasn't a mythical creature. Giant squids like this have been captured in the past, usually near the sea's surface, but this is the first time one has been filmed alive in the wild, majestically swimming at 2,066 feet underwater."

 
It'll be appearing on Discovery as part of their Curiosity series. Definitely one to watch!
