Squid can fly.

I am not making that up. Treehugger.com has the photographic evidence of flying squid:

“From our observations it seemed like squid engaged in behaviors to prolong their flight,” she said. “One of our co-authors saw them actually flapping their fins. Some people have seen them jetting water while in flight. We felt that ‘flight’ is more appropriate because it implies something active.”

But unfortunately such eyewitness accounts were all that the scientific community had to go on. Soon, however, that would change.

Extra points: the proof was obtained from the deck of a cruise ship.
