Bio: Unlike other Octopus, the Dumbo Octopus does not have an ink sack (an ink sack is used to confuse other predators)!
Grimpoteuthis is a genus of pelagic umbrella octopuses known as the dumbo octopuses. The name “dumbo” originates from their resemblance to the title character of Disney’s 1941 film Dumbo, having a prominent ear-like fin which extends from the mantle above each eye. There are 13 species recognized in the genus!
Dumbo octopuses live in the deep open ocean down to depths of at least 13,100 feet (4000 m) and perhaps much deeper, making this group the deepest living of all known octopuses!
