The E/V Nautilus was sent to the ocean floor to study biology, geology, and archaeology. While down there, they managed to capture one of the cutest sea creatures in the world.
This is the cirrate or finned octopus, which is also known as the dumbo octopus because the fins on it’s head look like the Disney elephant’s ears.
The Dumbo octopus spends most of it’s time sitting on the ocean floor, and if it wants to move it uses it’s fins to soar across the water. Many are overwhelmed by it’s cuteness, and we have to say, we are too!
