Dumbo Octopus

Known as Dumbo, this octopus gained its unique name because of its ear-like fins which protrude outward from the top of its head/ body looking like the Disney character- Dumbo. These unique creatures live at great depths of 3000–4000 meters below sea level and are some of the rarest of the Octopod species. The largest Dumbo octopus ever recorded was 6 feet in length and weighed 13 pounds, although normal size is much smaller.
