In May 2001, MBARI geologists were using a remotely operated vehicle (a tethered robotic submarine) to explore the seafloor off Oahu, Hawaii when they came upon this amazing squid. They estimated the animal to be between four and six meters (13-20 feet) long. After just a few minutes, the squid swam off at high speed.For more information, see the MBARI news release:http://www.mbari.org/news/news_releases/2001/dec21_clague/dec21_clague.html
