Octopus Dance

The depths of our oceans are alien places for most of us, which is why videos that offer us a glimpse of what its like deep below the surface are so popular.

Here we get to watch an octopus, Grimpoteuthis bathynectes, who is also known as the ‘Dumbo Octopus’ due to its fins looking very much like the ears of Dumbo the Elephant (see 1:40 in the video for a wonderful demonstration).

Watch as this beautiful and mysterious creature of the deep glides gracefully in the inky depths of the Pacific Ocean 200 miles off the coast of Oregon.
