This article in today's paper about a rare species of squid caught my eye. The squid was filmed more than 2km under the sea by a remote control camera, and has been identified as belonging to the magnapinna genus. Magnapinna is Latin for 'big wing/fin', and if you have a look at some of these pictures you can see how it got its name- from the huge size of the fins on the side of its head.
