This video shows a deep-sea squid Gonatus onyx fighting to eat an owlfish Pseudobathylagus milleri. It was recorded using remotely operated vehicle Doc Ricketts.

The title of this video refers to the law of tooth and claw, a literary theme depicting the violence in nature. Jack London’s “The Call of the Wild” is a classic example of this theme.
