/ Neon Flying Squid
Back in July 2011, Yamamoto and his team were tracking a large group of squid (Todarodes pacificus, also known as neon flying squid) about 370 miles (600 km) off the coast of Tokyo. As the boat got nearer, the 8-inch (20 cm) squid propelled themselves from the water where they remained airborne for a distance of 98 feet (30 meters) — and at the breakneck speed of 37 feet per second (11.2 m/s).
Unless I can see video footage of it then I won't believe it. For all we know they might have made it up.
Did they harpoon and eat them afterwards in the name of science or is that too predictable a thing to say?
