VIDEO: Diver Gets Bitten By A red Devil Squid

It’s probably a good rule of thumb to not grab and hold onto anything that could easily bite off body parts.

Steve Backshall goes on a dive and gets up close and personal with the Humboldt squid. Also known as the red devil squid, these things have powerful beaks that could easily take a finger off; which Backshall is more than aware of.

Although he’s careful while handling the squid and even has protective chainmail on to protect himself, the squid still manages to bit through it. Judging from his reaction, we’re guessing he wasn’t expecting the squid to actually tear through the chainmail.

Despite some screaming, it appears Backshall is fine. He should just count himself lucky it didn’t get a hold of one of his fingers!
