Description

Biologists Henk-Jan Hoving (GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel) and Steve Haddock (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute) caught some rare footage of the popularly called "seven-armed" octopus.

In the last 27 years, there have only been 3 sightings of this mysterious octopus. Little was known about its life, including what it feeds on to survive, until 2013.

That's when Hoving and Haddock came upon a female with the remnants of a jellyfish caught among her tentacles. The footage is not only an incredible find, but it sheds new light on the diets of these incredible cephalopods.
