As we know, marine life can be somewhat unpredictable. For this reason it is easy for us to misinterpret our interactions with them.

A team of marine photographers learns this first hand.  The team was in the Sea of Cortez to film squid feeding behavior. After a night of successful filming, the team returns to the dive boat and noticed that one of their team members, Alex, hadn’t surfaced yet.

Eventually Alex surfaced stunned and out of his mind. After he was able to pull himself together he was able to explain what happened. He explained  how what he initially thought was a playful squid turned out not to to be not quite so playful at all.  In fact, he found himself being attacked by a number of squid that eventually pulled him under to a depths of 135-140 ft before he realized what was happening and began to fight back and free himself.

Watch how this situation played out in the following video.
