    Hi Everyone,

    Whether you call it the fuzzy nautilus, the Sasquatch of the sea, or plain ole Allonautilus scrobiculatus, there's something special about this nautilus. Thanks to the CBC for coining the interesting sasquatch of the sea term and for the video.

    Understanding the entire biodiversity, not just nautiluses, of the deep sea is the best way to preserve and protect nautiluses and their habitat.

    Also such a cool encounter to see a sunfish (Mola mola) down deep with nautiluses!
