Ghost-like umbrella octopus dances around deep sea camera

"Along the ridge of the seamount Davidson - an extinct volcano, located near the coast of Central California - grouped females octopus".

The team aboard the research vessel Nautilus were delighted when Dumbo swam into view.

"Oh, it's giving us a show", one person was overheard saying in footage captured of the creature. 'You're going to be famous'. The vast majority of the Dumbo octopus species measure between 7.8 and 12 inches long, according to the aquarium. The area is about 129 km (80 miles) southwest of Monterey, California, and has been nicknamed the 'oasis of the deep, ' as it hosts a wide array of deep-sea corals, sponges and other inverbrates.

Interestingly, the location appears to be filled with octopuses, as the team discovered over a thousand brooding deep-sea octopuses just days after filming the Dumbo octopus.

"At first the ghostly octopod drifted past the camera on remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Hercules flapping its pair of wing-like fins, then it inverted its web, spreading it like an umbrella to reveal the eight arms each with a single series of suckers and two series of finger-like muscular structures called cirri (hence the name cirrate octopod)", the Ocean Exploration Trust stated. However, the term Dumbo octopus actually refers to an entire genus of deep-sea umbrella octopuses of at least 15 different species.

He also, hilariously, became verified on Twitter midway through the game. "This is awesome", Owens said before the game. Through three quarters Mullens has gone 15-of-20, for 260 yards, posting a near ideal quarterback rating of 156.3.


"The fact that we encountered one is what is special", he told Fox News, adding that the footage could be useful for octopus experts.

The biggest Dumbo octopus ever measured was more than 1.8m.

Dumbo octopuses live in the deep sea at extreme depths of 13,100 feet or even deeper, making them the deepest living of all the known octopuses. They thrive deep down the ocean surface which is where humans venture rarely.

"We had to move because of the length of the cable and where the ship was", Mr King explained.
