A Japanese-led team of scientists has captured on film the world’s first live images of a giant squid, journeying to the depths of the ocean in search of the mysterious creature thought to have inspired the myth of the “kraken”, a tentacled monster. The images of the silvery, three-metre (10 feet) long cephalopod, looming out of the darkness nearly 1 km below the surface, were taken last July near the Ogasawara islands, 1,000 km (620 miles) south of Tokyo.
I needed a break from all the nonsense so I went with some National Geographic stuff today. I can only take some much of Bieber smoking weed and other crap. All this time you were wondering where the legends of the Kraken come from, well here you go! I’ll be back tomorrow with some celebrity having sex in public or something. Have a good day.
