Peter Batson's photos from Deep New Zealand (1 of 4)

From Peter Batson: “A post-larval cranchiid Teuthowenia pellucida displaying 'balling' behaviour. This is one of a sequence of shots showing the animal retracting its tentacles and arms into the mantle, a defensive behaviour that takes place when the animal is disturbed or alarmed.â€
