    What looks like a cross between an Independence Day alien and a giant spider, this squid was filmed by a remote camera deep in the depths.

    It's not a new video but interesting for those who have not seen it yet.

    Love how sinister it appears, looking directly at the camera.

    Watch to the very end and see just how long it is.

    There should be more exploration of the seas and oceans.

    I wish, the deeper they go the more freaky the creatures look.

    Er yeah exactly. Apart from the whole "yay we discovered another species whopee" reaction, what else is there to say?

    you could say it's tentacles would make a hell of a lot of calamari. Seeing it on video is just the beginning, for all you know it could be telepathically communicating with its mother ship deep in space.

    It's not really a monster is it though? It's just a squid. Admittedly a strange squid but a squid nonetheless.

    It's a strange fact of life that more's known about space than is about our oceans. Very strange indeed.

    Our oceans really are fascinating places. I wish they'd put more effort into exploring them - some of the weird creatures they find are amazing, and no doubt there are loads more down there.

    The Blue Planet was a brilliant series.

    There are a lot of marine creatures in our seas and oceans that the scientists dont even know about, as a result , some of them dont even have a name. Perhaps the monster is a yet to be discovered type of squid.

    Exactly.
    Apart from giant squid there are still huge parts of the Oceans that have not been explored.

    The creatures of the deep may not be quite as photogenic as their cousins near the surface, but they are fascinating either way.

    I would love to see what else is a mile and a half deep in the ocean.
