New video of ‘Kraken’ in natural habitat released (giant squid)
Fox News ^ | January 24, 2013

Discovery Channel has released the first clip from its upcoming documentary about the elusive giant squid, which can grow to a monstrous 26 feet in length and is likely the source of the Nordic legend of the kraken.

Discovery Channel will air the footage -- the first time the giant squid has ever been seen in its underwater habitat -- in the special “Monster Squid: The Giant Is Real,” on Sunday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. ET.

If I were in the sunless depths in an itty-bitty bathysphere, and that thing were outside 15’ away, at it appears in that video, I don’t mind admitting I would be excreting masonry.

What strikes me about it is how human-like the eye looks, because so much of the white sclera is visible, unlike in most other animals. It really creates an impression of intelligence, just because of the similarity to our own eyes. You don’t get effect that from looking at the dead bodies of these things.
