The Scarlett Johansson Of Squids Is Finally Found!

It glows deep red. It’s two feet long. It is your new standard in marine life glamour.

A large new species of deep red, glowing squid has been discovered living near undersea mountains in the southern Indian Ocean, scientists announced Monday.

At about 28 inches (70 centimeters) long, the as yet unnamed species is relatively big—though other squid can reach as long as 65 feet (20 meters), some species are barely three quarters of an inch (1.5 centimeters).

Bask in the beauty.
