If you haven't seen the video of this Stubby Squid (Rossia pacifica) floating around the web, you are in for a treat.  According to, even though the creature looks like a cross between a squid and an octopus, it is actually more closely related to cuddlefish.  

The video was taken off the coast of California at a depth of almost 3,000 feet, but the species is found across the northern Pacific from southern California to Japan.  Check it out!
