National Geographic Documentary 2019 HD – Monsters Of The Deep: Giant Squid
The giant squid (genus Architeuthis) is a deep-ocean dwelling squid in the family Architeuthidae. Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size due to deep-sea gigantism: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 m (43 ft) for females and 10 m (33 ft) for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the two long tentacles. The mantle is about 2 m (6.6 ft) long, and the length of the squid excluding its tentacles (but including head and arms) rarely exceeds 5 m (16 ft). Claims of specimens measuring 20 m (66 ft) or more have not been scientifically documented.

The number of different giant squid species has been debated, but recent genetic research suggests that only one species exists.

  1. @ everyone getting antsy about them killing and dissecting these squids, how else do you think these scientists are going to find out the information they need to know about this class of organisms? It does suck but to be able to help conserve and save these organisms in future, you need natural history (conservation term) and due to lack of knowledge about these specimens, unfortunately some need to be killed and dissected as it's so rare to find dead ones just floating around. I study zoology and you would all be terrified of the amount of animals I have to dissect a year, it's just unfortunately how it is so that future generations can learn about all the phylum's of animals and to help conserve them and look after them.

  2. Looks like the paddles on the tentacles are curved in just a bit towards center on the strike.
    I was wondering if it's done on purpose due to having eyeballs on the side of the head causing a blind spot as we'll as being good tactics. Or is it only good tactics?

  3. Hello, good job on the genus architeuthus. About theory the good doctor has on the way it feeds, I believe the lady researcher explained clearly that the squids tenticals are controlled buy it’s muscle fibers and a very large vain or nerve so in my theory it feeding in a more surreptitious manner by leaving its tenticals extended is the wrong theory to choose because that would mean its muscle fibers would be exhausted by the time something actually swam by and it was able to grab it. due to the strain on the amount of oxygen in the cells in order to sustain that position for long periods of time.sort of like me exercising then my arms getting tired from too many push ups,I need to rest, essentially missing it’s opportunity to catch its prey.Same goes for the eyes to me leaving the eyes in a single position for a long period of time and waiting isn’t effectively using the organ to the best of its ability, it would get tired eventually making it have to retreat it’s tenticals not being very effective. It’s huge eyes are sensitive to light and fast movement to pick up the bioluminescent of of its prey in the vastness of the deep. its kind of hard to catch a school of fish like that because it must keep moving. I also believe that the genus’s bioluminescent part under its mantle are used for mating so it can identify the outline of its mate in the vast darkness since its eyes are so big it detects the faintest of light 💡 😀

  4. lol! at 5.32 the lady scientist gives the kiwi scientist a big head saying”I can’t believe you can catch it so easily “ then all of sudden!”EEEAAH!!!FICK!”He gets bitten by the squid. Then at 6.06 gets revenge on his lady colleague for the costly flattery using the same squid thinking” Laff et mee fir scrimin luk a betch!!!” lol!!
