'Winged' Octopus Caught On Camera

This white octopus was filmed with a high-definition underwater video camera at a depth of 6,600 feet (2,000m) 200 miles off the coast of Oregon as part of an expedition led by Professors John Delaney and Deborah Kelley of the University of Washington. The Grimpoteuthis bathynectes octopus, also nicknamed the Dumbo octopus, uses its fins to move through the water.
