Ever imagined being face to face with the infamous Kraken? It would seem that a couple of lucky bystanders from a Japanese port have caught a glimpse of a rather large squid, which happened to drop in unexpectedly. Tourists and citizens alike declared that a real-life Kraken was spotted in a Japanese Port.
According to several testimonies, it would seem that the giant squid simply wandered into the Japanese port, very much to the public’ delight. The marauding squid made its stage appearance almost a week ago before being spotted by the locals.
It took the local wildlife authorities approximately a week before they can drive the squid away from the port and into the open seas. Meanwhile, being prompted by this unusual occurrence, tourists and bystanders got the treat of a lifetime. Many would wonder into the Japanese port just to snap a few shots of the massive squid.
According to port authorities, the real-life Kraken measured more than 4 meters in length and has discovered on the 24th of December. This discovery was made in the port of the Toyama city, on the northwestern coast of Japan.
In order to help the giant squid break free from the port, the port authorities have dispatched deep sea divers. The divers successfully managed to take the giant squid into the open waters. When interviewed, Akinobo Kimura, the owner of a diving shop from Toyama, declared that upon touching the giant squid in order to help it break free from the port, the giant sea creature grabbed his limbs.
The shop owner also declared that when the squid affixed its giant suckers onto his arms, the experienced diver felt a sharp pain. Going on with his declaration, the diver said that when he took up the squid, the large sea critter wrapped its giant tentacles around his body.
When hearing about this event, a local marine scientists and a curator for the Uozu Aquarium rushed to the scene in order to see the giant creature for himself. The scientist said that it was an unexpected encounter, and seemed to admire the beauty of the underwater creature. Moreover, the scientists added that the squid was blood red.
As we come to understand, actual encounters with live squids are very rare. Only scientists keen on studying these creatures are capable of filming them. But, every once in a while, a squid may wonder off into ports or get caught in fishing nets.
