The Kraken is an oversized version of the Giant Octopus (which is believed to be a myth), the giant Squid never was related to the sea monster Kraken which supposedly pulled down ships.

Is it just me or does it look like the squid was posing for the camera at 1:22 ? xD

10 seconds of footage fluffed up with some guy talking for the sake of it

First of all, Whales vs Giant Squid is badass! There’s need for science, unless you want to make it more boring.

Old vid, I know – I have barely seen anything yet and need to complain:
the giant squid (Architeuthis Dux) will never reach a weight of 1 ton, that's the colossal squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni) which is a totally different animal.

So why did we have to hear you yack about nothing, and why weren't we able to see more video of the Giant Squid…complete waste of time!

We havent seen any because those in the oceanic business r e f u s e to show any, 'All information pertaining to sea exploration has to be declassified first', These people are asswipes in this industry.

I’d rather see the entire clips, with you narrating, than you talking while quickly flashing said clips.

I'm freaking the f@#k out right now! Every time they show it vertical with that eye looking the way it does, my knees get weak, and I want to throw my phone, scream & run!

Roman Ramos May 31, 2018 - 2:14 AM

Grh Haddybow August 9, 2018 - 1:48 PM

I Think you are talking about the Colossal squid not the Giant squid as the Colossal squid is like a massive Humboldt squids and the Giant squid is in way different proportions having legs way longer than it's mantel an 2 tentacles not as long as its numerous arms/legs as a colossal squid in proportion only!!!
But in overall size I think the Giant squids dwarfs the colossal Squid in every way, only in mantel size could it possibly be bigger mass than the Giant

King of the ocean? You do realize that Sperm Whales literally eat these guys for breakfast; their the true kings of the ocean.

Brandon Bartlemus February 13, 2019 - 7:18 AM

Gentleman, it appears we have an aquatic mop.

Helen Beale July 1, 2019 - 3:14 AM

Can we have a look at Megalodons please?

Aby Mathew July 6, 2019 - 9:20 AM

NASA and other space research agencies around the world spending billions on finding ET life forms on distant planets, while here on earth there are millions of species yet to be discovered….Why NASA is not interested in Squids..LoL
Or JPL, they could learn something from Squid proppelssion system.

It would be great if you could find the, probably mythical, honest politician who cares about America and its citizens at least as much as s/he does about their paycheck or power-tripping (Mitch!) That NY cuomo guy really came through when a hero was needed, compared to what a turd-burger our conman and chief is.

Joana Gonzalez February 2, 2021 - 1:23 AM
