While diving, they stumbled upon a giant squid egg – video

It is not necessary to explain to anyone who dives, that under the surface of water in lakes, seas and oceans, amazing wonders created by mother nature are waiting for us. A group of divers came across one of these wonders near Ørsta in Norway.

Ronald Raasch and two of his companions were diving from the research vessel REV “Ocean” when they came across a giant bubble underwater. It turned out to be a squid egg containing hundreds of thousands of tiny squid.

The sight is extremely rare, so we can speak of great luck, as a video footage recorded by divers and depicting this unusual encounter has found its way online.

On 5 October, the group was returning from a dive during which they explored a World War II shipwreck sunk in the Norwegian Sea. About 200 metres off the Norwegian coast, at a depth of 17 metres, a much more surprising sight awaited them than a pile of steel from a few decades ago…

In the sea, about 15 metres above the bottom, floated an unknown object. A huge transparent bubble, which turned out to be the egg of a short-finned squid (Illex illecebrosus) and a real miracle… a miracle of creation.
