Photographic Evidence Proves That Squid Can Fly
- Once, while boating off the coast of Jamaica in 2001, marine biologist Silvia MaciÃ¡ and her husband caught a glimpse of an oddly familiar creature leaping from the waves, soaring with ease over the surface of the ocean. As the animal propelled itself for some 30 feet, MaciÃ¡ realized she was witnessing the most unusual sight -- a flying squid. So intrigued by what she saw that day, MaciÃ¡ would go on to co-author a paper examining similar observations, though essential photographic evidence of the incredible phenomenon remained elusive. That is, until now.
