Rare Giant Squid Filmed in Japan

On Christmas Eve 2015, residents in Japan's Toyama Bay were surprised to see a rare giant squid which was estimated to be approximately 3.7 meters (12.1 feet) in length! Female giant squid are larger than their male counterparts, and can reach lengths of 40 feet!

Catching these elusive creatures on camera is a rare occurrence, and this may be the third documented sighting on record! View the incredible footable of this massive marine cephalopod below!
