The Dumbo Octopus

The animal of the day is the Dumbo Octopus. (Did you know: This picture in this post is decieving! The octopuses can reach up to 6 feet in length and weigh 13 pounds! They are named after the Dumbo disney character because of their fins that look like ears!

The Dumbo octopus is strange in the way that it consumes food in that it swallows it prey whole, which differs from any other kind of octopus.
