        Magnapinna Squid | Songs for Unusual Creatures | PBS Digital Studios

        "We were doing a dive with our remote vehicle off of Hawaii at about 4,000 meters ... and saw what looked like a rope hanging in front of the camera," says David Clague of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). "It turned out to be one of the arms of this gigantic squid! None of us had seen anything like it." Join Michael Hearst from Songs for Unusual Creatures as he visits David at MBARI in Moss Landing, CA to discuss the Magnapinna Squid. Then undulate along to spectacular footage of this unusual creature while music is performed on trumpet, trombone, and tuba.
