This Sea Creature Will Freak You Out

This is the bigfin squid, a rare and creepy cephalopod. This particular creature one was spotted at a depth of almost 8,000 in the Gulf of Mexico.



The first bigfin squid was seen in 1988, and only a few have been seen since. Check out the full video, taken by a Shell oil company drilling site.

  1. That is so creepy!

  2. What are the two big oar looking things at the bottom of the picture?

  3. Hey Clay do you know how big they normally grow to be in length and weight?

    • It’s tough to say, because they’re so rarely seen. The one in this video is roughly 23 feet long. Which is enormous. What’s interesting is that there are likely thousands of creepy creatures like this lurking in the oceans that we’ve yet to discover.
