This large squid, Taningia danae, has been caught on film, and it’s amazing stuff. It swoops in on its prey, arms splayed wide, using its luminescence to disorient the target. It’s beautiful!

    I’m curious, PZ. How many people sent you this? I did, but I assumed that dozens of others beat me to it.

    That’s just too cool, a completely freakin me out.

    Showed it to a coworker and he said “okay… if I saw that I would scream like a thousand little girls”
