Pink octopus: discovered in the US is called adorable
Pink octopus. Big eyes, skin and pink gelatinous tentacles that look like the trunk of an elephant. This octopus belonging to the family umbrella octopus, known as “Dumbo octopus“, was discovered recently by a marine biologist and researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in California: Stephanie Bush.
The latter, finding the cephalopod decidedly “adorable” by his appearance, he decided to give it a name that reflected its sweetness, worthy of a cartoon: “Opisthotheusis Adorabilis“.
In fact the tender octopus pink remember Pearl, one of the characters of the animated film Finding Nemo (2003). The Adorabilis lives in the depths of the ocean, so the encounter with humans is a rarity. Researchers have intercepted in the waters of Monterey Bay aquarium and recreated its natural habitat to study (temporarily) the characteristics of the cephalopod.
