Giant Squid Photographed for First Time
http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory?id=1165747



TOKYO Sep 28, 2005 The giant squid can be found in books and in myths, but for the first time, a team of Japanese scientists has captured on film one of the most mysterious creatures of the deep sea in its natural habitat.

The team led by Tsunemi Kubodera, from the National Science Museum in Tokyo, tracked the 26-foot long Architeuthis as it attacked prey nearly 3,000 feet deep off the coast of Japan's Bonin islands.

"We believe this is the first time a grown giant squid has been captured on camera in its natural habitat," said Kyoichi Mori, a marine researcher who co-authored a piece in Wednesday's issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.

1. Um, Underpants, I hate to say it, but there are about as many
threads on the giant squid as there are on Tom Delay's indictment.

However, it is so frickin' COOL!!!
