On this year’s Christmas Eve, residents of Toyama Bay saw something of which they have never expected a rare giant squid near a dock in the bay. For many hours, the giant squid remained around the bay and then the owner of a local diving shop guided it way back to the ocean.
The 13-feet long invertebrate was first spotted by a group of fishermen. The species was wondering around the boats in the Japanese port. In the past, Toyama Bay has been home to 16 giant squid settings, but current sighting was rare, as they prefer to dwell in the deep ocean.
