Rare Giant Squid Australia [Video] - The “Giant Squid Attack By Shark” video is going viral with more than 400,000 views.
The footage which was shot off the coast of Australia shows an extremely rare, vibrant squid being chomped at by a hungry 8-foot blue shark. The rare squid appears to have been attacked by a sperm whale or another squid first. And in the case of shark vs. rare squid carcass, it seems the shark is the clear winner.
The squid, one expert told the paper, has an intense ammonia smell.
The video was uploaded onto YouTube on Monday and by Tuesday afternoon had nearly a million views.
“I can’t believe how mad the media has gone about the giant squid,” McGlashan tweeted. “Interviews all day — mind u (awesome) encounter to get on film!”
