Giant Squid Wants to Go for a Ride
39-year-old James Taylor (not the singer) was paddleboarding off the coast of Merkbosstrand, South Africa with his wife Christina when something unexpected happened. A giant squid (ok, technically just a really big squid) tried to take a ride on his board.
According to Taylor, the squid appeared injured. So he dropped a rope down for the squid to grab, allowing Taylor to bring it back to the safety of shallow water. The sea creature found the rope to be insufficient, and decided to crawl onto the board itself. At one point that sent James jumping into the water. Check out the Instagram video below.
No word yet on what happened to their new tentacle friend.
