This Octopus Is So Adorable That Scientists Might Name It ‘Adorabilis’

Your eyes are not deceiving you. That is a real creature. It is a type of flapjack octopus which has been collected since 1990. Now, scientists have come to the realisation that it is a different subspecies of flapjack octopus and they are busy trying to come up with a name for it. This creature, which looks more like a Pokemon then a real animal might well end up being called Opisthoteuthis Adorabilis, because let’s face it, if it is one thing then it’s adorable.
