Giant Squid Off The U.S. Coast Caught On Film

A giant squid has been filmed in U.S. waters for the first time.

A team of researchers funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recorded rare footage of a giant squid in the Gulf of Mexico, about 100 miles southeast of New Orleans and over three-thousand feet below sea level.

The camera was on a deep-sea probe disguised to look like a jellyfish, which the squid mistook for a meal.  The researchers estimate that the squid was over ten-feet long.

No one’s been able to film a giant squid in its natural habitat until 2012, when one was filmed off the coast of Japan.
