A tasty title (tasteless, I mean) for a post about giant squid.

Scientists have finally seen a giant squid in the wild. Until now, all we’ve been able to learn about the cephalopods is what we can find out from their carcasses when they wash ashore or were accidentally caught by fishing vessels. But Japanese scientists lured one into view and snapped more than 500 photos of the beast.

Here’s what intrigues me most about the story, however: The photos are a year old. Why did it take them so long to release the photos, especially when this is such a huge breakthrough (no pun intended)?

Perhaps now that they’ve found an elusive giant squid, perhaps the team should go after the Loch Ness Monster.
