Some fishermen in Russia recently found themselves in a battle against an enormous squid as it attempted to steal their catch. Watch the video below to see the squid make repeated attempts to take the fish from the fishermen.

The crewmembers spring into action to push the cephalopod’s gigantic tentacles away from their livelihood and are eventually successful in preventing the creature from taking even one of their fish. As the squid leaves just as hungry as when it arrives, you can see the enormity of its body and tentacles.
Experts who have studied the footage are still uncertain as to whether it was a young colossal squid or a fully mature giant squid. Either way, it was certainly not a battle these fishermen expected to find themselves in.
