Animal or Vegetable? Strange 'Ninja Seaweed' Disappears When You Touch It (Video)

Coming through a long line of blogs is this really cool, amazing, perhaps creepy video of what's been dubbed 'ninja seaweed'. It was filmed in the Red Sea and the rumor is that it cures gout, but no one seems to be able to identify it. Even though there are plants that react when you touch them, my bet's solidly on this being some sort of animal.
