Scary alien squid with elbows

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/11/081124-giant-squid-magnapinna.html

This is some freaky-assed stuff. Shell is drilling, and this... thing... floats by.

In a few seconds of jerky camerawork, the squid appears with its huge fins waving like elephant ears and its remarkable arms and tentacles trailing from elbow-like appendages.

Despite the squid's apparent unflappability on camera, Magnapinna, or "big fin," squid remain largely a mystery to science.


Yeah... I'd nuke it from orbit to be sure...
