Seriously. I am not making this up. This is a real animal.
The Dumbo Octopuses1 (genus Grimpoteuthis) are seriously weird-looking creatures that live on the sea bed 400m below the surface.
1The correct plural of ‘octopus’ is not ‘octopi’ because octopus comes from Greek. Words like ‘genius’ that become ‘genii’ are from Latin.
