From the genus Magnapinna, the Bigfin Squid's long tentacles can grow up to four and six meteres (13-29 feet). Their purpose? Scientists speculate that they run them along the sea floor to snatch prey.

So creepy. Creepy creepy.
But can anyone answer me as to what the weird balloon things are? In the video they don’t look organic and I know this is the Shell Oil Rig video. But I don’t know enough about oil rigs to know what the heck is going on with them and they creep me out almost as much as the squid itself.
