Ghost from the Deep: The Giant Squid – First footage alive in a French Documentary
The French TV channel “Arte” has broadcasted on January 10th, 2013 this documentary showing the first giant squid ever been seen alive in its own environment. The research team included 35 scientists from 11 countries and was led by Japanese specialist, Professor Tsunemi Kubodera. The expedition took part in the summer 2012.
The giant squid has been filmed in its natural habitat and its size was approx. 10-foot-long (3 meters), while the largest ever caught measured 59 feet (18 meters)
Even if the documentary is in French, the images are stunning and talk by themselves. It really worth to be seen!
