I found a very strange creature in Pennykamp today

I dove Molasses reef today and came across something I've never seen before. Anyone know what this is?

It's amazing right? I've never seen anything like it. It kept changing color. I googled cuttlefish and squid and came up with nothing. I'm totally stumped. The dive master on board has never seen one before either

Wow, been a long time since anyone's stumped me! Just goes to show you, no matter what kind of weird stuff you've seen in the ocean, there's something stranger! I mean, take that last picture... the octo's neat and all, but what the Heck is that thing behind it!!!

I've been diving S FL, Keys and Bahamas for 35 years and have never seen that, let alone even heard of it. Very cool!
