September 7, 2014: Predation Events

Swarms of squid were seen while diving in Norfolk Canyon; the squid were feeding and being fed upon. This video captures one attempted, but unsuccessful, predation event where a red crab fails to grab a squid that is swimming by and one successful predation event where a monkfish gobbles up a squid.
