Hunting nautilus

The nautilus usually hunts around 500m down, risking an ascent to the surface for the abundant scavenging opportunities only when the water becomes colder and during the darkness of a new moon. Filming opportunities are few and far between and, as specific behaviour is related to very particular environmental conditions, observation of reported discoveries can be hard.
