Amazing Nature

This squid made a speedy getaway when it felt threatened, leaving a trail of ink in its wake.

Patrick Rahill was diving off Belize, observing the fascinating reefs when he came across a small squid, floating though the water.

However, the squid felt threatened by Patrick’s light and GoPro and decided to flee from the scene.

Leaving a trail of black ink, the squid jetted off and faded into the dark depths of the sea

Patrick said: “Scuba diving and filming underwater is my favourite thing in the world because you never know what you’re going to get.

“Squids and octopuses use it to confuse other fish that might eat them!

“Apparently this squid was afraid of me and my GoPro!”
