What Just Happened?!

Ocean Exploration and Research shared this amusing video of some thrilling deep sea action involving a benthic fish and a sea snail in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“This video, collected during Dive 16 of the Windows to the Deep 2018 expedition on June 30, 2018, highlights a benthic fish (Atlantic Midshipman, Porichthys plectrodon) dwelling in a burrow, snatching a large midwater fish (barracuda in the family Paralepididae) with quill worms as onlookers.”
