Rare giant squid sighting in Japanese harbour - BBC News

A giant squid was recently captured on film floating around a Japanese harbor (Video: http://bbc.in/22xhcNA). Giant squid are among the largest invertebrates on earth, and while they are rarely spotted by humans, they are likely not rare. Giant squid live in the mid-level depths of the world's oceans, an area that is relatively unexplored.
The Museum's own giant squid specimen, measuring 30 feet long, arrived at the Museum in 1998. Learn the story in the Shelf Life episode, The Voyage of the Giant Squid. Watch: http://bit.ly/1Slk8bK

Giant squid prefer the deep ocean, so it was a rare treat for onlookers in Toyama Bay when one swam into the harbour.
