Big, scary squid invading Coastside waters

KQED’s Quest visits Pillar Point Harbor to examine the mysterious, disturbing invasion of the unpleasant Humboldt squid from Mexican waters to northern California and beyond.

A mysterious sea creature up to 7 feet long, with 10 arms, a sharp beak and a ravenous appetite, has invaded ocean waters off Northern California. Packs of fierce Humboldt Squid attack nearly everything they see, from fish to scuba divers. Marine biologists are working to discover why they’ve headed north from their traditional homes off South America.


Oh.  I thought this quote from the clip was from the preceding Beachwood development post: 

“...huge alien creatures, large packs of invading cannibalistic predators, seemingly from another world.  Nobody knows exactly where they came from, what they’re doing here, or how long they’ll stay.”
