Just read a rather surreal story on Yahoo news - scientists in Japan have managed to take pictures of a Giant Squid! They are really worth a look, the thing was about 26 feet long!

Check it out here

Saw this on the news last night,this is the first time ever one has been caught on film,a real "mythical"beastie.It makes you wonder what else is down there,IMHO now the space race is where it is that money should be spent exploring our seas.

I think the aim was to just take a picture - I hope they weren't trying to catch one! :eek:

Well. Nice to see hard to get pictures.

Just a shame they had to rip one of it's legs off to get them :(

Sushi, anybody?

PS: Yes, T & S, surfing is well good.

But I really think I a bit too old do do that anymore, sad to say :(

But there again, who knows? hehe ;)
