Check out this Greenpeace Vine post
of a huge squid attacking a Greenpeace submarine.
It was filmed in the Bering Sea between Russia and Alaska.
As you can see, the squid sprays dark ink in response
to the submarine’s presence, although it is unclear
whether this was an attack or a defensive response.
It is also unclear as to what type of squid this is,
but sources speculate that it’s a jumbo or red devil
squid that is far north of its normal habitat.
It’s ironic, because that’s my nickname in high school.
These squids are highly aggressive,
and have been known to attack divers and fisherman when
They are also known to put up a fight when captured, causing
them to spray their enemies with ink and water.
Although rarely found north of California,
rising climate temperatures have caused the jumbo squid
to travel further north, which could explain
their presence in the Bering Sea.
But what do you guys think?
And what other mysterious ocean animals
would you like to learn more about?
Come let me know down in the comments.
And to find out what this strange underwater creature is,
check out this episode.
So, this guy totally looks like a jellyfish, right?
But he isn’t.
No, this is a hydra medusa.
And thanks a lot for watching.
I like animals.
This is fun.
It’s nice in here.
