The giant squid is maybe the most terrifying monster that actually exists. It definitely was the scariest thing in Disney World circa 1987, where it was beasting the Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea submarine. But it's not just some Disney creation -- it's real, even if we don't catch a glimpse of it all that often. Now, though, a group of scientists has caught one of these behemoths on video. And we can all marvel at how fricking amazing (and did I mention terrifying?) it is.
