    Hey,

    don't know if everyone has seen these or not, but here are a couple of nice vids from the GOM of that strange long-arm squid. Scroll down to the two links 'New Deep-sea squid from Toledo...'

    The SERPENT project is great, well worth checking out their other galleries and what they're up to.

    Enjoy

    Wow! That is amazing footage! Here's a link for everyone; see the last video clip.

    Looks like it borrows into the sand with that appendage (tail?) on its mantle (at TONMOCON I over the weekend, Lou Zeidberg showed us some squid species similar to this, and referred to the appendage as "the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree", 'cause that's basically what it looks like).
