Giant Squid are real! Scientists Observe Live Giant Squid.

Yet another crazy conspiracy theory turns out to be true. Since at least the 1860's skeptics have ridiculed people for their belief in the giant squid. "No serious scientist could believe in such a creature." You might want to pay closer attention to people's reports of strange creatures.

"When a nearly 6-meter-long (19 foot) tentacle was hauled aboard his research ship, Tsunemi Kubodera knew he had something big. Then it began sucking on his hands. But what came next excited him most -- hundreds of vivid photos of a rare giant squid in its natural habitat deep undersea." - moscowtimes


"This is a photo released by Dr. Tsunemi Kubodera of the National Science Museum, showing an 8-meter (26-foot) long Architeuthis attacking prey hung by a rope, white line at left, at 900 meters (yards) deep off the coast of Japan's Bonin islands, 1,000 kilometers (670 miles) south of Tokyo, in the fall of 2004. The camera was operated by remote control. (HO, National Science Museum / AP)"


This is a dead baby giant squid on land. The one photographed above under water is over twice this size.
