    Wow holy shit, I think me and some friends are going to Island Bay next week, I will keep my eyes peeled for any giant squids.

    (Although I'm pretty sure they aren't this far north)

    Jim, this photo has totally made my day, I don't think I've ever seen such concentrated glee in one mug.

    So you had a good trip then?

    Lol thanks. I was scared! Yeah it was nice, just on the road for two months, moving every day. I could have kept going. Forever.

    The video is a view through an 8x microscope zoomed in on the dorsal side of the caudal fin of the squid. We used a suction electrode to stimulate the fin nerve. Chromatophores are pigmeted cells that come in 3 colors: Brown, Red, and Yellow. Each chromatophore is lined with up to 16 muscles that contract to reveal their color.

    A Japanese film crew and a team of scientists have captured the first footage of a giant squid in its natural habitat. Pictures of the 10ft-long sea creature were shot at nearly 2,000ft below the Pacific, 620 miles south of Japan. Scientists spent 400 hours tracking the squid in a submarine before they recorded the images
