A 3-meter-long giant squid was found stranded, but still alive on April 20, in what local authorities said was a rare occurrence.
At around 10 a.m., a nearby resident spotted the squid at Ugu beach in Obama, Fukui Prefecture, on the Sea of Japan coast.
According to the Obama Municipal Government, the squid was still alive when it was found.
It is unusual for a giant squid to be washed ashore alive, officials said.
The deep-sea creature will be transported to Echizen Matsushima Aquarium in the prefectural city of Sakai. [Mainichi]
Fukushima radioactive water? Is Japan going to be hit by a Big One earthquake in the next few days?
Now it is evident that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, for “The just shall live by faith.” But the law is not of faith, for “The man who does them shall live by them.” Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law by being made a curse for us—as it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” so that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. (Galatians 3:11-14 Modern English Version)
