A pair of scuba divers capturing rare video of an eight-foot giant squid swimming in the waters off Japan's west coast.
Yosuke Tanaka and his wife Miki, who operate a diving business in Toyooka city, were alerted to the squid by someone who had spotted it in a bay.
The couple took their boat out to reach the creature as it floated near a rocky shoreline.
Giant squid are known to live in the waters around Japan, and occasionally wash ashore, but seeing them alive in the wild remains relatively rare.
The pair said the squid looked weak with parts of its skin peeling.
