This is something you won’t expect, an octopus that is adorable..! When we think of adorable creatures it’s often cuddly fluffy animals, not an octopus. But scientists, of the The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, think that this ‘new octopus’ is so Adorable that they have to name it Adorabilis. Maybe because it looks like a cross between a Pac-Man ghost and a Pokemon creature.
This rare cephalopod belongs to the Opisthoteuthis genus. That’s the same genus as Pearl, the pink flapjack octopus (Opisthoteuthis californiana) in “Finding Nemo.”
