It seems that in the sea depths there are not only terrifying monsters but also small and cute weird animals. The Dumbo Octopus is a perfect example; it was found on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. A scientist named it Dumbo, for its cuteness and resemblance of the famous elephant character; it has two small growths on its head next to its eyes and they really do look like ears!
This cutie uses them as fines, and it has a very fast way to consume food. Instead of ripping its prey like other Octopi do, Dumbo swallows it right away. This irrational and rare Octopus was discovered on April 26th, 2014 during a mission on Okeanos Explorer ship.
