    Great intro video; welcome to TONMO!

    Sadly, most giant squid encounters are like this... when the squid is very near death.

    Is. . . is that stuff coming out of the squid at the end what I think it is?

    @mournblade , I don't know what else it could be. It seems pretty clear that the penis is exposed and ejecting spermatophores. If you visit the YouTube web page the "more" notes mention reproduction and actually refer back to TONMO for more info ;)
