    Great video and photos. I didn't realize the suckers on their arms have teeth! - Listen for the diver - "OUCH"!

    hmmm, i'm not sure I like the viewpoint of the video. I thought that footage was amazing, but if shows like this are what is educating the public, then we're just going to have another mass murder like we did with sharks...

    Agree with GPO87, and also not so sure that the squid aren't reacting at least in part to the camera. Still, cool stuff!
