NOTE! This animal has a thin brown margin on the sides of the headshield. But what found surprising was in the video a few seconds into it you can clearly see
the posterior end of the headshield has 2 "hairlike" protuberances that are sucked into the center. Later on you see that same area between the two "hairs" looks
like a tube that could inhale water making the "hairs" react as they did.
