There are videos that can make us laugh, and there are videos that can leave us stunned. Such a video of a 10-foot giant squid is going viral, and netizens are left shocked.

In the video, the 10-foot giant squid can be seen swimming in the shallow waters of the Ugu beach in Japan. The officials can be seen taking photos of the rare incident, and they measure on the tape to know how long the giant squid is. Take a look at the video:

The video was shared on the official Twitter page of Mainichi Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper and has gathered more than 2 lakh views from the date of sharing. The numbers are still steadily increasing only. Netizens were stunned to see the giant alive squid and expressed their opinions in the comment section.

As per the publications' reports, the giant squid was spotted at Ugu beach by a local fisherman at 10 am on April 20. However, the publication added that the squid was alive when found, and that's something very unusual.

The giant squid was later transported to Echizen Matsushima Aquarium in the prefectural city of Sakai. Giant squids are the deep sea-dwelling creatures that usually don't come near the shore, but this is not the first time such instances have occurred.
