Tiktok user @mndiaye_97 makes fascinating videos about animals and I love the creator's fun commentary and introduction to species that I've never heard of before. This week I watched the creator's piece on the bigfin squid, which led me down a rabbit hole of terror. (I heartily recommend looking up anything you see on Tiktok or YouTube--or anywhere online, for that matter--for verification.)
This creature looks like a majestic jellyfish of some kind from afar, but when you see its legs bent at 90 degree angles, trolling the ocean floor for prey... and when you find out that we know almost nothing about them, and that they grow up to 26 feet long (or longer, since we don't have any adult specimens to confirm due to their elusive nature)... they get pretty scary!
