Octosquid found off Hawaii

Is it a new species? The so-called octosquid is certainly unusual and might be new, according to local scientists.

Caught in the filter of a deep water intake pipe, the animal has 8 octopus-like tentacles, with a squid like body (see picture). Enough to stir the imagination.

Ocean fun never ends, so long as we do a decent job at keeping our oceans clean and healthy.
