Folks, unless you’re keen on watching a bus-sized mollusk slowly lose its mind in a tank, you can kiss your dreams of getting close to a live giant squid goodbye. These deep-sea dwellers need dark, freezing waters and mystery to thrive. Trying to keep one of these massive squid captives would be an ethical nightmare – and good luck finding one and bringing it back alive in the first place. So while we get the appeal of wanting to lock eyes with a dinner plate-sized peeper, when it comes to giant squid, observers will just have to respect their need for privacy. The ocean’s secrets must remain secret, so don’t be greedy – just let that Architeuthis be.
