Katie Holmes' Instagram (opens in new tab) account is a beautiful eccentric tapestry of things. It's like a collage that her soul makes and we love her for it. Her latest Instagram post, however, has left a lot of her followers pretty damn confused.

On Saturday, the actress shared a short video clip on her grid. The video shows a small being, which appears to be a little turtle, bobbing along in the water for a few seconds before disappearing beneath the surface. Katie (opens in new tab) captioned the video, "Too cute 💕," which left fans—many of whom commented that it looked to them as though the small animal was eaten by something bigger swimming beneath the surface of the water—confused to say the least.

"I think it just got eaten. 🤔," one user commented.

Other viewers had different, less disturbing interpretations, however.

"I think that must be a larger turtle it goes to...otherwise the caption wouldn’t make sense," one offered.

"I think baby is swimming with mama," another added. "Just diving."

Here's the video. Watch it for yourself and determine what you think is happening in the clip:
