The Elusive Giant Squid

Scroll to explore this learning path.
Playlist Description

After decades of research, scientists have finally discovered and captured video of the elusive giant squid. First recorded in ancient Greek literature, the giant squid has been mystifying all those who have studied it since the fourth century B.C. Shattering records at more than 40 feet long and nearly 2,000 pounds, the giant squid is a force to be reckoned with. Yet despite their staggering size and long history of existence, these gigantic creatures have surprisingly evaded much scientific research. Avoiding scientists is not a difficult task when the place you call home lies 600 to 2,600 feet below the surface. Its prey haven't been so lucky in learning about the creature either. One of the most mysterious predators in the animal kingdom, giant squids have yet to reveal how they stalk and hunt. Yikes.

If these aquatic creatures are so private what do we know about them? How do scientists today plan to gain more information from such historically elusive animals? There's much left to explore in the hidden caverns of the sea where these beautiful, sequined legends lie. And when it comes to giant squid, there are always more questions than answers. Dive deep into this playlist and uncover the secrets that wait at the bottom of the ocean.
