Since when do Squid have elbows?

I’d say it’d be since Shell (the oil company) found this one (click for video!). Apparently scientists have known about this kind of squid before, just they’d never captured one on film. Sure sure, they’re hiding it from us. Before you know it, we’ll be attacked by giant walking squid that can shoot laser beams from their beaks, raining destruction down upon our defenseless cities!

A mile and a half (two and a half kilometers) underwater, a remote control submersible’s camera has captured an eerie surprise: an alien-like, long-armed, and—strangest of all—”elbowed” Magnapinna squid.
