Excellent website you picked for the post! Yet I have no appetite to view it once again... when I first saw the short video most stations showed on CNN at night time and in bed, it gave me nightmares! But I do acknowledge this is a sensational discovery for the science world.

I love all animals and giant squid are no exception however I do say leave them be. To reach a giant size they have reached a good age that deserves respect.

Very interesting. It would be good to use his vessel to monitor the release of methane from the ocean floor. that would really aid conservation.

Firstly I would not want to be outside the sub. lol - dinner.
Secondly, I much prefer octopi and cuttlefish; such intelligent creatures and very beautiful.

Fantastic article, pictures and video. Thank You Carrie.
I feel that Ray Dalio, with his huge research vessel and mini submarines could do some better good in monitoring the conditions and methane releases from the ocean floors.(As mentioned by Alexandra R). Does he just want the glory of finding this giant architeuthis - well according to the scientists there is probably much bigger ones.
We should be leaving them alone anyway!

Interesting. They should be left alone! Why do we always have to mess with nature? Why can't we just marvel at it from afar?
