Dumbo Under the Sea

The Dumbo Octopus lives in the sea at about 7,000 meters below sea level. It gets its name because of its two ear-like fins that are placed at the top of its head. These fins help the Dumbo Octopus swim away from prey faster than any normal octopus.

Bonus Fact: The Dumbo Octopus tends to swallow its prey (usually worms and crustaceans) whole, unlike others of its kind.
