Magnapinna – hideously ugly alien squid video

A Magnapinna squid has been captured on video by Shell, the oil company some mile and a half (two and a half kilometers) underwater. This incredibly ugly, alien looking squid appears to have squid elbows.

The Magnapinna squids are rarely seen and this one was captured on film in an exciting find by a Shell oil company remotely operated vehicle. The squid was filmed just hanging around at the Perdido oil and gas site in the Gulf of Mexico. Shell has only recently revealed the footage despite the fact that it is 12 months old.

Imagine how many squid rings you would get out of one of those arms. I’ll have a side of chips as well.
