NOAA says this ghostlike octopod, discovered more than 2 1/2 miles underwater near Hawaii, is almost certainly an undescribed species.

Such a beautiful creature. It really worries me that we now have equipment that can really go to great depths--putting wonderful undiscovered sea creatures at risk. Nothing good ever comes from discovering new animal species. thx Judy

There are so many fantastic things to discover in the deep oceans. I love the video of this little octopus.

There is so much we haven't discovered yet!
Fascinating when a new discovery is made.

Thanx Judy
