Vampire Squid
Monterey - California - USA
Vampyroteuthis infernalis
Small white discs / Dots are Photophores - Light producing organs - Deep sea 600-900mtrs/2-3000 ft in the oxygen minimum zone - It is currently the only animal in the order Vampyromorphida, an order "in between" octopus and squid, mainly due to the addition of sensory filaments believed to be used for finding food in the deep sea - It has eight long arms and two filaments that extend well past the total length of the body and can retract into pockets found in the webbing between the arms - Within the webbing are two pouches wherein the tactile velar filaments are concealed.
