Scientists from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Office of Ocean Exploration and Research released a video of a deep sea squid following a remotely operated submarine. The creature is seen above the vehicle, at a distance that is not clear from the photograph, apparently following the vehicle as it moves across the ocean floor.

The squid species, Grimalditeuthis bonplandi, was only discovered in 2005 and not much is known about them other than they are a variety of bio-luminescent squid that live at depths we are only recently discovering.
