Spectators at Japan's Toyama Bay were treated to a rare appearance by a giant squid on Christmas eve. Researchers estimate the squid is around 12-feet long and is relatively young. Squid like these have been spotted at some 40 feet in length, though scientists say they can make it to 60 feet.

The Christmas squid named 'Heck' was later ushered by back into open water.
