Euprymna scolopes (Bobtail squid) behavior

    Newer Older

    Soon after this little guy was subjected to the dive light, it dug into the sand until only its eyes were visible above the surface. The light sandy color on the upper part of its eyes makes it almost impossible to see when hiding in the sand.
