Giant Squid from Gulf of Mexico's Midnight Zone Caught on Video

June 24, 2019

The rarely seen giant squids are always cool to be caught on camera, but they've never spotted one on video in the Gulf of Mexico, but this video changes all that.

A live giant squid has never been videoed in US waters until this one! The video was captured by a team of researchers on an expedition funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, who were studying the impacts of light-deprivation on deep sea creatures who live in the "midnight zone," 3,280 feet below the surface.

Super cool! Now as long as it doesn't swim up by the shore in Orange Beach. :)
