Rare Deep-Sea Squid Caught on Camera

Our next story takes us underwater for an incredible video of a very rare visitor to shallow coastal waters.

This is a giant squid, seen in the marina at Japan’s Toyama Bay. Normally, these enormous creatures are found only in the deep ocean.

The diver who shot this video estimated the mollusk was nearly four meters long -- that's about 13 feet! The squid eventually made its way away from the marina and out to sea.
