@Laura Frances- so cool! Vampire squid

"blanket octopus" so unique

Inverted Vampire squid. Vampire squid have eight webbed arms, tipped with suckers and lined with fleshy spines (called cirri), and two retractable sensory filaments. When threatened, it inverts so that the cirri point outwards in a menacing fashion

The vampire squid is neither a squid nor an octopus. Unique.

New carniverous sea creature, dubbed the "harp sponge," was discovered in deep ocean waters off California's Monterey Bay.

Unusual Jewel Squid December 16th, 2008 Despite its delicate, decorated appearance, this jewel squid was found 1,650 lung-crushing feet (500 meters) beneath the surface of the North Atlantic. Scientists on a recent deep-sea expedition found the squid, called Histioteuthis, along with an abundance of other species thought to be very rare, if not unknown, elsewhere. Jewel squid are known for their mismatched eyes, one of which is larger than the other to scope for prey in the deep’s darkness

The fact that this sea creature looks exactly like a rock with guts is not even the weirdest thing about it. It’s also completely immobile like a rock — it eats by sucking in water and filtering out microorganisms — and its clear blood mysteriously secretes a rare mineral called vanadium. Also, it’s born male, becomes hermaphroditic at puberty, and reproduces by tossing clouds of sperm and eggs into the surrounding water and hoping they knock together. Nature, you are CRAZY.
