10 Sea Creatures That Look Like They’re From Another Planet

Dumbo Octopus

The Dumbo Octopus was originally spotted in 1999, and then video taped in 2009. The cute little creature can survive in depths up to 7,000 meters, making it the deepest surviving octopus in the entire world. They have a bell-shaped head with flaps on the sides, which gives them the name.

Vampire Squid

The Vampire Squid sounds hellish, but is kind of beautiful if you think about it. They live in depths of up to 600 to 900 meters, and generally survive further down than any other squid in the world. They have larger eyes to capture what sunlight they can while living in the darkness.
