The Real ‘Kraken’ (Giant Squid) Caught On Video!

One of the most financially successful yet critically panned movies (what do they know, anyway?) of 2010 was “Clash of the Titans.” I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, especially because of its great cast (Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes as gods!) and the spectacular special effects. One of those effects was Zeus’ (Neeson) pet giant sea monster, the “Kraken,” which is itself rooted in Nordic (not Greek) myth. The creature believed to have inspired the real-life Norse myth of the kraken, the giant squid, had been playing “hard to get” with researchers when they tried to photograph it.

Fox News reports that finally, it’s been caught on video. You can see why this beautiful–yet creepy–sea creature could inspire myths of sea monsters. The ten-foot long creature, which has razor-toothed suckers and eyes the size of dinner plates, will star in a Discovery Channel special, “Monster Squid: The Giant Is Real,” featuring the new footage. The special airs Sunday, January 27  at 9 PM CST as the final episode of the current season of “Curiosity.”
