Giant squid had long been doubted in our day as fantasy creatures. Giants like the one who attacked captain Nemo's sub in 2,000 leagues under the sea were only fantastic exaggerations.
Sailing ships being mistaken as whales and attacked were just tall tales from sailors. Then they began washing up on shore. Long tentacles were found in whale stomachs and now they have been captured on film.
Science books will now change yet again.
