Jumbo Squid-Cam Uncovers Secrets of Elusive Creature

A Crittercam attached to a Humboldt squid captured some amazing footage, as this screengrab shows.

The footage has helped reveal some remarkable secrets of the Humboldt squid: They are capable of amazing bursts of speed, up to nearly 45 mph (72 km/h); they "talk" to each other by changing their body color; and they hunt in big synchronized groups.
