This photograph shows a deep-sea octopus in the genus Stauroteuthis that has turned itself inside out, perhaps as a defensive maneuver. What you are seeing is the underside of six of the octopus' eight tentacles, as well as the underside of the fleshy web that stretches between the tentacles. #ocean #sea #deepsea #marinelife #nature #science #octopus

Amazing Deep Sea Octopus | See More Pictures | #SeeMorePictures

Dumbo octopus. Was so named because the fins that grow out of the side of its head resemble the floppy ears of Disney's flying elephant. The Dumbo octopus lives in extremely deep waters (up to three miles down.) It has huge eyes that are kind of adorable, and cute little tentacles that seem far too short for its bulbous little body. The Dumbo octopus uses both its tentacles and its Dumbo ears to move around, feeding off small worms, bivalves and crustaceans found on the sea floor.
