In between two worlds ours and the abyssal depths a solitary nautilus has come up to the 200-foot level to feed. I can scarcely believe it. Here is an animal which has survived relatively unchanged for millions of years. Studied mostly in shell and fossil form, and briefly in captivity, here at last in the wild is the living animal. A living fossil! Shy of light, he slowly moves away towards his secret home in the depths. Jet-propelled, he swings rhythmically like the pendulum of an eternal clock. The nautilus has ticked off many ages of evolution. It has seen the evolution of fishes, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals.
From “The Ocean World of Jacques Cousteau: Oasis in Space” by Jacques-Yves Cousteau, 1972.
