This pancake octopus is cute to the point that it may authoritatively be named “adorabilis”. Examples of this anonymous octopus have been gathered following 1990; now Stephanie Bush, a postdoctoral analyst at the Monterey, said that she is thinking about the exploratory name Opisthoteuthis Adorabilis.
Opisthoteuthis is the same family as Pearl, the pink pancake octopus in “Discovering Nemo”. The octopus is 7 inches (17.8cm) in breadth, lives in the remote ocean, and has a web between its legs, permitting it to “parachute” through the water. It utilizes the blades on its mantle to guide. via info: montereybayaquarium.org | Facebook | Instagram | Tumblr | YouTube (h/t: huffpost) | via boredpanda
