Squid sighting: Scientists share first-ever footage of ‘freaky’ Ram’s Horn squid


The oceanographers initially had no idea what they were looking at when the odd-looking three inch-long (7cm) squid first made its long-awaited debut.

The bizarre creature boasts bulging eyes, eight arms and two tentacles.

Data reveals how the elusive creature was officially found 2,790ft (850m) below the surface, almost at the very limit where sunlight can stretch.

Scientists now know that beneath its cylindrical-shaped outer body is a shell complete with gas chambers allowing the squid to stay buoyant.
