Husbandry

Very special thanks to NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research for this really great picture.

The Agassiz's flapjack octopod was found during dive 12 of the 2019 Southeastern U.S. Deep-sea Exploration.
The pale dots are clear windows in the skin of the funny little "Dumbo Octopus".
