Meet the bigfin squid, an elusive and frankly quite terrifying cephalopod. This one was spotted in the Gulf of Mexico under 7,800 feet of water.

According to Deep Sea News, little is known about these squid because few have ever been captured.

The first was seen in 1988 and only a handful have been seen since, mostly by cameras on remotely operated vehicles.
