"My, What Big Ears You Have"

What does this look like to you?

It's kind of funny looking, isn't it?  

It has a very important sounding name:  GRIMPOTEUTHIS.  Don't worry, I can't say it either. Fortunately, it is also called a DUMBO OCTOPUS.  There are quite a few octopuses in this group.  Some members of this group can live deeper in the ocean than any known octopus--like at 23,000 feet (7,000 meters) below sea level.   That's deep!  But mostly they live between 9,800 to 13,000 feet (F3,00 to 4,000 meters) beneath the sea.
