I was trying to avoid posting a new thread..but after hours of searching google and this site (yea, its probably an easy one, maybe i'm ignorant to this search feature) i still haven't found anything resembling this guy. I was swimming at panama city beach florida and with me was a black creature. Im sure it was a cuttle or squid, but i still have not been able to identify it completely. No tentacles, pure black, swimming with fins only, on top of the water near the shore. The eyes weren't apparent and i didnt see any tentacles. I followed it for a good minute and as soon as the camera came to me it submerged. Approximately six inches long. I know this isn't a lot of info..but maybe someone will know what it is right off hand. Thank you, and sorry for the long boring thread!
