Ghostly Dumbo Octopus in the Deep Sea

A very rarest “Dumbo” octopus was spotted by a remotely operated vehicle of the Ocean Exploration Trust which was in the midst of exploring the north Pacific Ocean.

The creature whose appearance was described as “ghostly” was seen swimming around 2,665 metres deep above the researchers’ ROV Little Hercules, about 20 metres from the sea floor.

The octopus’ appearance is similar to that of the title character of the 1941 Disney film ‘Dumbo’ was seen using its ear-like fins to swim on an EVNautilus live stream which was happening in the waters around Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument (PMNM) in the north Pacific Ocean.
