“You probably don’t look this adorable when you swim… The deep-sea flapjack octopus, Opisthoteuthis “adorabilis,” is a cirrate octopus—meaning that a pair of hairlike filaments surround each sucker on its eight webbed arms. Incirrate octopuses—like the giant Pacific octopus—do not have these cirri, and are more commonly found in shallower waters.

A flapjack octopus can use its arms as a parachute to pulse about and catch the current, while two earlike fins help it maneuver over the deep sea floor. Find out more about our research on this adorable and mysterious critter!”

While I find my cats extremely beautiful and endlessly fascinating, on this sappy cat Friday, the blog is featuring deep sea life.  I really like the little creature at the start of this video.  There is so much more to know about our oceans.  Some say it should take precedence over space travel. I don’t think so.  Why not do both.
