Pictured is an unknown species of octupus found in the Southern Ocean. The species was discovered recently by researchers from the University of Oxford, University of Southampton, the National Oceanography Centre, and the British Antarctic Survey. This octopus, as well as other new species of crab, anenome, gastropods, and predatory-sea stars were discovered near hydrothermal vents at about 7,874 feet under water.
