Tiny Cockatoo Squid Bumps Into ROV Hercules

"This transparent cockatoo squid, also known as a glass squid, lives in the depths of the ocean and has many adaptations to help it survive there. It retains ammonia solutions inside its body that give it a balloon-like shape and help it float. It has large eyes and pigment-filled cells, or chromatophores, that look like polka dots and serve as camouflage." (Source: Smithsonian Ocean Portal: http://ocean.si.edu/)
