Once you are in the Glacier Passage, you will find several side rooms with Murals. Essentially any room without a puzzle mechanic is likely to contain a Vampire Squid, it should not take too much effort to track one down. Once you find one, keep your distance, as the Vampire Squid can disperse a defensive cloud that deals damage if you get too close. Please wait for it to settle and hit it with a weapon or a harpoon to ensure you don’t waste any precious ammo. If you can consistently avoid its ink spray, you should be able to capture the Vampire Squid without too much issue.
