Dangerous EncountersStreaming Video - 2013
Little is known about the invasive species that threatens commercial fisheries in the coastal waters of Baja California Sur, Mexico. In this episode, Dr. Brady Barr and his team of researchers embark upon a risky mission to study the Humboldt squid up close. The mammoth sea creatures grow up to six feet in length and travel in enormous schools numbering upwards of 1,200. Meet the highly aggressive fish known by Mexican fishermen as the "red devils," reported to have attacked divers-and so elusive as they use their funnels to propel out of the water and glide, almost flying, as they escape predators. Dr. Barr will capture one of the squid unharmed and attach National Geographic's state-of-the-art Crittercam for a closer look.
