An encounter with a femal blanket octopus which immediately brings back to mind a "mystery creature" which elicited a fair amount of discussion several ages back, in this very forum, as towards its identity. The "bobbing creature with headschlong" caused quite a stir, back then, this appears to be more proof of air, trapped inside the mantle cavity as a feature of this surface hugging behavior...

Ooh, I missed this thread, @OB (but I had indeed seen that great footage). Here's the original thread in question; I was looking at it recently... honestly, still doesn't seem all that conclusive to me!
