The Most Unusual Creatures In The Deep Blue Sea

Swimming with the Dumbo Octopus

Deep down in the ocean live some of the weirdest creatures called Dumbo octopuses. They swim at a depth of at least 13,100 feet, which makes them the deepest living octopuses on earth. A unique trait of theirs is that they can successfully reproduce with a mate at any time.

Just by looking at the picture it’s easy to tell that they move in a weird motion because they slowly flap their fins and use their arms to steer. Luckily, they are almost never captured and aren’t threatened by humans.
