That, AND the Isla Santa Clara video, if that is anything more than an teuthid myth I seem to have co-created myself :sad:

In fact, we should immortalise him with a Dr Kubodera emoticon! (Neil has one!)

How about something like this? Do you think we need a love heart behind him or wings?

We've certainly had a lot of incredible squid findings lately-first Dr. Kubodera's stills, then the Archi that Dr. Kubodera brought up to the surface... and now this and the huge Messie. I'm stunned and excited.

I've watched each of these videos several times and I'm stunned by the speed and agility of the Taningia, especially considering its massive size. Does anyone know how much of that agility and speed is related directly to the size of its fins? Because those are some huge fins.

Strange how it's completely unfazed by the bright light and huge metal claw that the ROV controller was using to push it.

And how strange and cute it is!

It looked as if it had just lost part of an arm. I wonder if the arm severing had anything to do with its insistence investigating. Short clips are so tantalizing.
