This deep sea octopus is being studied at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. It is part of the genus Opisthoteuthis but the specific name is up to Stephanie Bush, the scientist working on describing this particular species.

Ciao, bella octopus! We'll miss your camouflage and crazy suckers!
Such an alluring dance, such a fun undersea party!
Oh how I'd love to get a hug from a wee octopus!
