Two Grimalditeuthis bonplandi specimens observed in the Gulf of Mexico by ROVs used in the offshore oil industry. The first specimen 'swims out' both tentacles by what appears to be the undulating movements of the tentacular clubs. The second specimen has only one tentacle stalk and maneuvers the tentacle club in a way that suggests mimicry of the movements of another organism.
