Video clips upon squid captures by
female northern elephant seals. Clip 1: The seal fed on the squid Histioteuthis sp. (depth: 656 m). Clip 2: The seal fed on the squid Octopoteuthis sp. (depth: 415 m). Clip 3: The seal encountered the squid Taningia danae (at time 00:18; depth 662 m), but the squid escaped (00:21).
