Swimming Next to a Giant Squid Egg Is Just Spooky


A team of divers filmed a rare glimpse of a huge transparent egg sac containing hundreds of thousands of baby squid.

The stunning underwater video was filmed by Ronald Raasch, 48, as he was diving with two other team-members from the research vessel REV Ocean in the cold waters outside Ørsta, Norway.

On October 5, the team of divers was swimming back to shore after visiting a WWII shipwreck about 200 metres from the coast, when they had a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with a mysterious object.

Floating 17 metres below the surface and 15 metres above the ocean floor, was a giant transparent orb which the divers quickly identified as a 10-armed squid’s egg sac.

So how would you feel if you had such an encounter deep underwater? [Youtube – Caters – video by Ronald Raasch]

  1. Wonderful to see, thanks for posting. I’m sorry it was difficult to work out the scale and that there was no mention of approximate diameter in the text. Do the researchers know how the egg maintains it’s depth if it does?
