Giant squid captured on film

If this checks out, the giant squid, Architeuthis Dux has been captured on film by a Japanese research team.

Marine biologists have been trying to film a live, adult giant squid for decades. This is a major breakthrough, especially as they have a sample from the creature filmed, for DNA verification. The Washington Post article has a single frame of the film. To get some perspective on the find, this particular squid is as big as a school bus. No news when the film will be released.
