Sea Pig Sighting
Nautilus spots a species of pelagic sea cucumber better known as a "sea pig" - make sure you stick around until the end of the clip to see the creature get up close and personal with Hercules.
The Windward Passage, located between Cuba and Haiti, is a major conduit between the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. It is a site of complex currents, mixing and exchange of water that have been little explored despite the historical importance of this region as a major shipping route. This region also represents a very active portion of the northern Caribbean plate boundary, where several geologic (seismic and tectonic) features and processes occur along the seafloor beneath the Windward Passage.
