Nautilus

The crew of the Ocean Hunter III baited these with chicken, and then brought them up from the abyss (> 200 m) to diveable depths. The nautili clearly wanted to descend again, and we had a few minutes with each of them to take photographs.

 

Nautilus are ancient cephalopods, primitive relatives of squid and octopi.
