One of the rarest creatures on the planet was spotted in Toyama Bay in Japan last week, where a diver captured this footage of a giant squid that was swimming close to shore, and in shallow waters, something that they seldom do. The squid is believed to be about 3.7 meters (12.1 ft) in length, which is impressive in size, but far from full grown. It is believed that the largest of these animals can grow to be over 13 meters (42.6 ft) in length, although those titans are generally only found at great depths. Still, it is impressive to see this animal up close.
