Yesterday we reported that the Discovery Channel would soon be airing the first ever footage of the giant squid, and the first footage has surfaced online via an ABC News broadcast. There's only a couple seconds of footage teased in the video below, but it shows the squid's tentacles (that can grow to 50 feet long) and massive eyes. An additional video filmed off of a TV appears to offer an eerie glimpse of the squid in full, writhing in the ocean deep. The full documentary special Monster Squid: The Giant Is Real will air on the Discovery Channel on January 27th.
