It's sad that whenever you see a video nowadays about some animal doing something interesting, there's always that disclaimer at the end that warns you that this may be the last time you see such an event because of human activity.

I wonder if this caused a anti-terrorist-unit being deployed and an evacuation of the surrounding area - thousands of blue lights in the see, that HAS to be a terrorist attack with thousands of swimming bombs...

What wonderful flicks.
Has anyone catalogued the various postures of these squid?
And/or Has anyone done so
either relative to their actions,
or relative to their dynamic motion?
[The Japanese are detail oriented folk]
Definitely interesting.
