Great job by the good people of Delray! Nice video footage as well. ID?

Not a squid, at all, but a spent female Tremoctopus violaceus, good year for these, apparently :) You can see "blanket" fragments washing up alongside the specimen in this video. The eggmass appears to also be misssing, judging from the footage, henceforth "spent", they apparently wash up regularly post spawning. This animal was at the end of her life cycle, well intended, but futile rescue attempt.
