Angel Fitor - Sand dressing

 

A bobtail squid the size of a bean lifts up in the water column at dusk, after its daytime burial under the sand. This nocturnal rainbowed cutie uses its tentacles to cover itself with a fine layer of sand in order to melt with its environment during the light hours. Portrayed specimen still retains its sandy dress right before starting its hunting activity.
