Vampire squids turn inside out to avoid predators


The vampire squid can turn itself “inside out” to avoid predators. This video was released by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute to emphasize the need to protect species like this in the deep oceans from the effects of human activities.

Fun fact: They are considered to be living fossils, “meaning that it has seen very little change since it first appeared, before dinosaurs, about 300 million years ago.” Not so fun fact: these creatures are now threatened by ocean warming, decrease in oxygen, pollution, overfishing, and many more man-made dangers.
