"skirjames:
yes im sure they "found" the carcass -_-"
no, they found the squid, but it can`t survive in shallow water, so they studied it as much as they could alive, and then once it was dead, they froze it... this is them defrosting it to study it even more.

Well, the adult blue whale has a heart the size of a car, so it stands to reason that there might be squid even bigger than that one.
As much as I support space travel, I`m thinking that deep-sea exploration is a worthy cause.

I think the camera man was having a hard time finding the eyes... most of the shots were just random parts of the squid... XD

It looks like a giant steak. Also, I wouldn`t call that eye intact, provided that white and black thing was the eye. Confusing. I wanted just a picture of a giant eye and some man holding it and grinning.
