The Discovery Channel and Japan’s NHK media outlet have released the first video images ever taken of a giant squid in its natural habitat. The footage, which will air in its complete form in an upcoming Discovery documentary was captured 2000 feet below the ocean surface off the coast of Japan. NPR, US News, and other media outlets are covering the story.  The footage is the result of a joint effort by Japanese and US scientists, which began in earnest after Japanese zoologist Tsunemi Kubodera took photographs of a giant squid in 2004.
