World's Cutest Invertibrate Found!

We found this video on You Tube and had to share the cuteness rarely seen above deep-sea level. The little bugger's proper name is Stauroteuthis syrtensis Grimpoteuthis, I think? It's common name is Dumbo octopus for those little ear looking flippers that help it swim. The other nom de mer it is known by that is just bad marketing - Vampire Octopus. It has little stingers down a line on either sides of it's suckers. They measure 1-5 inches and eat worms, sea snails and other tiny gross things. Totally not a vampire, but if it were it would be the cutest of all vampires. And that's a fact.

Since I didn't make the video I can't cut it down to a shorter, sweeter size but it does feature a yellow submarine and one of my favorite songs by Duran Duran, The Chauffeur. So do try to watch it long enough to see the cuteness below the sea.
