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.

I understand the Duluth long tail tee shirt covers the Evil kraken
Kracken my butt, that’s a water based medussa...my eyes....
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.
Oooh.....3 meter Giant Squid
three cup squid -
12 ounces cleaned squid, cut into pieces
1 inch piece ginger, cut into matchsticks
6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (or 1 1/2 tablespoons sweet dark soy sauce)
hanful thai basil, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 1 teaspoon water
1 red chili, deseeded and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Bring pot of hot water to a boil. Blanch squid for 20 seconds, drain and put aside.
Heat a wok over high heat and when hot but not smoking add sesame oil. Add garlic and ginger and cook 1-2 minutes.
Add squid and quickly stir it around a few times. Add soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, and sweet soy sauce to the wok. Toss to make sure squid is fully coated. Add chili pepper and cornstarch mix and toss until combined. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with thai basil.
three cup, a taiwanese style refers to the 3 cups used for a bigger sized dish, one of each soy sauce, sesame oil, and Shaoxing wine
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.
