New Cirrate Octopus Footage

Gorgeous and mesmerizing, I am absolutely fascinated by sea life.

Posted below is some amazing new youtube footage of a cirrate octopus. If you're a little sea-thingie squeamish, look away!

From the YouTube page: "Making a rare appearance just in time for Halloween, this ghostly-looking orange cirrate octopus was recently observed by MBARI's ROV Doc Ricketts swimming over the Taney Seamounts. These finned octopuses belong to an order of animals called Cirrata named for the presence of hair-like structures called 'cirri' which may aid these animals in the capture of food."
