NHK/NEP/Discovery Channel/Handout/Reuters

A giant squid is seen in these still images taken from video, captured from a submersible by a Japanese-led team of scientists near Ogasawara islands in July 2012, in this handout picture released by NHK/NEP/Discovery Channel in Tokyo on January 7, 2013. The scientists have captured on film the world's first live images of a giant squid, journeying to the depths of the ocean in search of the mysterious creature thought to have inspired the myth of the "kraken", a tentacled monster.
