Usually I'd say squid is best viewed after it's been cut into small chunks, fried, and dipped in marinara. But this video gives a new perspective: For the first time, Japanese scientists have filmed Taningia danae, a large deep-sea squid, as it attacks its prey.
As you can see, as Taningia swoops in on its prey (the long fish dangling in the middle), its tentacles give off blinding flashes of light to stun and disorient the target, creating a window of opportunity for the squid to mount its attack. Clever calamari!
