This squid really does look like an alien

The video below shows a Magnapinna squid, or "Bigfin" squid, that was filmed at a depth of over a mile and a half by a shell oil submersible. Tell me that awesome creature doesn't look like a space alien. Seriously. Here is a short National Geographic article on the sighting.

Enjoy new and movie-worthy animal sightings,

That awesome creature does not look like a spa ...

I couldn't do it. Amazing! It looks exactly like a space alien from a movie. Wow.

I love the double and triple takes the camera does, trying to access its size...and then tries to find it again.
This world is far stranger than space.

Not as creepy as that spider with the bird tho....
