While calibrating equipment used to study deep sea creatures, Australia’s Marine National Facility captured this footage of one squid attacking another. Scientists are uncertain of the exact species of the squid involved, but they are likely neon flying squid or Nototodarus gouldi. It’s also possible the squid are two different species. The attack took place at a depth of about 443 feet below sea level.
