This Cute Little Octopus Will Make Your Heart Skip A Beat!

While diving off the central California coast, the team of E/V Nautilus encountered this Flapjack Octopus (named for its ear flaps) lingering on the sea floor. E/V Nautilus is exploring the ocean studying biology, geology, archeology, and more. For more photos from our dives, check out our Instagram @nautiluslive.

See if you look closer you can see that one of its tentacles is shorter than the other one, but you can't really tell especially when it starts twirling.

It's actually a baby cthulhu who took the form of a baby after seemingly dying from an arduous battle against the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

+rainbow kirby well it's possible because octopuses could service at any depth including in reefs and the bottom of the oceans because they don't have air bladders or anything like that. So I'm positive you could keep on in a tank but you'll have to always make sure there intertain because they are know to get very stress and bored if they don't have anything to do and will cause trouble
