Rendezvous mit Riesenkraken

Die Geschichte von Ellie

Pacific giant octopuses are the largest octopuses in the world. Florian Graner shows the mysterious life of these mollusks. In the process, he establishes a close relationship with the octopuses. In parallel, he follows the development of the young female in an aquarium. Giant squids are bizarre creatures with a rapid life course: Within only four years they grow up to ten meters; the "aliens" have "brains", are curious and seek contact with another species.
