Ghostly Octopus

Researchers aren't used to seeing ghosts on the seafloor. But on the latest cruise of a submarine controlled on NOAA's Okeanos Explorer they found an adorable octopod all ready for Halloween on the seafloor near Hawaii's Necker Island. The team working on the remote-controlled submersible has captured other amazing sea life before but none so spooky as this. The octopod is believed to belong to a completely unknown species, and may even be part of an unknown genus.
