PHOTO: EAST NEWS/ PHOTO RESEARCHERS/This species of Grimpoteuthis, or flapjack octopus, is a deep water species. These octopuses are also called “Dumbo” owing to the large fins on their mantles and their similarity in appearance to the children’s character, Dumbo. Another key character to this group is the webbing between the tentacles. This individual was captured in a trawl between 500 meters depth and the surface, 2007: By Dante Fenolio/Science Source/East News,

– The barreleye has a transparent head, so you can see how their eyes and brain look inside. This magnificent creature lives in the deep sea. This is the lowest level of the ocean, where strange creatures roam in near-freezing temperatures and constant darkness.
– The elephant shrew is native to Africa, where it roams the continent wide and large. Even though they are spread over a large area of land, it is very rare to see them. They are usually found in forests and prefer to live in places with a lot of leaf coverage on the ground, and they feast there on insects, spiders, and earthworms.
– The vampire squid feeds on food particles from plants and animal matter floating near the ocean’s surface. Turning themselves inside out is a defensive mechanism since the spiky areas in the inner skin are more intimidating.
– Venezuelan poodle is so rare that very little is known about it. What is generally agreed upon is that the moth is probably part of the lepidopteran genus, Artace.
– The blue dragon isn’t just pretty — it’s also smart! It usually feasts on Portuguese man o’wars, and it stores their stinging cells for later use, in essence, stealing their defensive mechanisms.
– The bunny harvestman has been found in the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador. Technically, it isn’t a spider. It’s considered to be part of the Opiliones species, making it a daddy longlegs.
– Though Dumbo — the elephant, not the octopus — was teased for his big ears, it’s highly unlikely that this adorable octopus gets teased by its water neighbors. They are the deepest living octopuses, living in the deep sea.
