Giant Squid @ Japan

In this photo released by Tsunemi Kubodera, a researcher with Japan's National Science Museum ("NSM"), showed a rare 26-feet long giant squid attacking a bait squid being pulled up by his research team off the Ogasawara Islands, south of Tokyo, on 4 Dec 2006. The research team, led by Kubodera who is the Chief Of Division Of Invertebrate Zoology of NSM, has succeeded in filming the giant squid live, possibly for the first time, at the surface as they captured it off the remote island of Chichijima, which is about 960 kilometers (600 miles) southeast of Tokyo.
