In this National Geographic News article, read about the first photographs ever taken of a live giant squid in the wild. Scientists say they snapped more than 500 images of the massive cephalopod before it broke free after snagging itself on a hook. They also recovered one of the giant squid's two longest tentacles, which severed during its struggle. Links to a photo gallery and related stories and Web sites are also found on this page.
