Histioteuthis is extraordinary in having one small eye and one large: the latter tubular in shape, with a yellow lens and reduced field of view.
Various ideas have been proposed for how Histioteuthis uses its eyes: the larger yellow-lensed eye perhaps being for breaking the bioluminescent camouflage of overhead animals to see their silhouettes against the remnants of down-welling light.
Using the kreisel, and by video recording in both visible and infra-red light, we have been able to observe the way Histioteuthis orientates its body and its eyes in response to gravity and directed illumination.
