Japanese scientists are learning more and more about these giant squid, this time they have released new footage showing a spectacular array of lights coming from the squid tentacles. These squid, once thought of as gentle creatures, show an increasingly aggressive predatory instinct. The films were taken at depths of 240m to 940m (790 to 3,080ft) and show the squid reaching speeds up to 2.5m (8ft) per second as they attacked the bait, engulfing it with all eight of their tentacles and blinding flashes. Other squid have already shown the ability to communicate by changing color, no doubt the giant squid are capable of the same.
