Here’s something a little different and a bit astonishing • Researchers have been exploring the Phoenix Islands Archipelago, also known as Rawaki.
On one dive in particular, the team spotted an extremely rare, clear animal known as a glass octopus. The octopus was spotted at 651 meters (2132 feet) at a seamount in the Winslow reef complex on Tokelau Ridge. They’re not a huge creature, reaching 18 inches from tip of the mantle to the tips of the tentacles. It’s one of the least studied cephalopods in the world.
…Honestly who needs aliens?…
