It's Octosquid!


Last week, a creature unknown to science was discovered caught in a filter of the deep-sea water pipeline that runs off the coast of Hawaii's Big Island.

Imagine coming across a lizard with a snake's body or a dog with a cat's head. This is just as weird.) No one knows how this strange hybrid came about. But I'm willing to devote my entire life to finding the answer! (OK, maybe not.)

I think someday, more strange animals will come to be and I hope people find the facts behind these strange creatures of nature.
