The Nautilus Live crew encounters a Flapjack Octopus (Opisthoteuthis sp., most likely O. agassizii) with the ROV currently exploring the deep sea Anegada Passage in the Caribbean Sea.

*Although the species is identified as a “Dumbo Octopus” in the video, I decided to make a more specific identification for you ;)

Retumbling not just because sea creatures are awesome but because scientist commentary in the video is the best
