    That is awesome! I've seen some incredibly insane creatures when I'm diving but obviously those are very deep water specimens that I doubt divers would ever see but I would love to if I ever had a chance! :)

    I really recommend watching the video at end of article, it's so weird it almost looks fake until you see it move.

    Exactly... NOPE.

    It looks like a cross between a spider and a manta ray. I definitely do NOT want to come across one of those, although I would venture to say the chance of me ever seeing one in person is slim to none. Which I am more than ok with.

    Now, I know it's wikipedia, but I was curious about how big this thing actually is, and here's what I found -

    [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigfin_squid"]Bigfin squid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    It looks almost alien-like. Although, I would bet most deep sea creatures do. I wonder how many creatures there are that we haven't yet discovered, I'm sure there would be a whole bunch.
