Release The Kraken!

Stories about giant squids have been part of folklore and myth for a very long time.  One Colossal octopus by Pierre Denys_de_Montfortwas seen in 2006 but only after it had been caught and brought up. Japan’s National Science Museum, working with Japanese broadcaster NHK and Discovery Channel, have got actual film of a giant squid in Pacific Ocean. The squid was spotted at 2,000 feet from a submersible. The footage will air on 27 Jan 2013 at 10:00 p.m. EST on Discovery. Two photos accompany the story at Fox News.

Pretty cool.
