(Nov. 30) - An underwater camera at an oil and gas drilling site off the coast of Texas has captured a rare sight: a squid with "elbows."

The creature, caught on video by a remote-controlled device owned by Shell Oil, was spotted last November roughly a mile and a half below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, according to a report in Britain's Telegraph.

First identified ten years ago, the magnapinna squid has long tentacles that hang at right angles from "arms" that jut out from its body. Scientists are still unsure what function the elbows serve, with some suggesting they help prevent the tentacles from getting tangled when trawling for food.

So how will Nintendo use this animal in the next Pokemon game?
Now would the elbows hinder the usage of its tentacles? I imagine it would be harder to wrap itself around stuff if it had elbows.

That's pretty sweet.

EDIT: Holy Hell, that thing's tentacles are long.

No elbows though.
I'd assume a squid with elbows would be some preevolution.

Excuse me sir, but that is a Octopus, not a squid.

Darn, I tried.
Well we don't know how the elbows affect the squid, as we don't know how it hunts. Seeing as it stays stationary in the water (must be VERY deep down). It most likely "floats" near the surface, with it's tentacles "touching" the bottom feeling for prey, the elbows could help spreading the arms out. Atleast that's what I though of when I saw the vid.

The squid reminds me of the octopus things on the sewer level on Starwars on the N64.

Long story short, 10 minutes later we were all sat there jerking off. (Our own, not each others)

It's tentacles are like 50 feet long, and it looks vaguely like those aliens from Independance Day.

Squid are amazing though. I've watched about 5 hours of squid documentaries, because I'm cool like that.
