The line is either ventral or dorsal, and the tentacle bases are on the left. Hard to see where a gladius would fit though.

That'd make the organs the first to break down, the easiest to consume, and possibly quite tasty to some small fish that could just waltz right in the big gapping hole at the top of the animal and feast. Though it may not be a squid, I would definitely think that it'd be organic at least fiven the presence of the remoras, including one suctioned on and possibly feeding.
I look forward to seeing more pictures, if possible.
Those resting remoras look like they've oriented themselves in the direction of the current. Current pushing into the tube might puff it out some, yes?Tintenfisch;78163 said:The rigid appearance is a little weird, but the rest of the features look very squiddy to me.
