    Anya and I are doing our report on the Dumbo Octopuss:

    • Dumbo octopuses are naturally rare living in the depths of the oceans around the world. Dumbo octopuses live in the deep open ocean down to depths of at least 13,100 feet. and perhaps much deeper, making this group the deepest living of all known octopuses. Life at these extreme depths requires the ability to live in very cold water and in the complete absence of sunlight. They are the rarest species. There are 13 species of the Dumbo octopuses. The name “Dumbo” originates from their resemblance to the title character of Disney’s 1941 film Dumbo.

      Dumbo octopuses come in different colors, some white, some red, some brown, some pink. Like most octopuses, they can also change color or ‘flush’ the outermost layer of their skin to make it appear different, effectively camouflaging them against the ocean floor.

      Dumbo octopuses only have been observed around New Zealand, Australia, California, New Guinea, and the Philippines.

      Because the Dumbo octopuses are so hard to see it would just be amazing to be able to see one. We are going to see the next time we go to an aquarium if they happen to have one on display.

      • We did it on those too they are so cute. You have info we did not so you get an A++. You two are always on top of things
        • They are so cool looking, like Dumbo, and yet they are so rare. Thanks for all the interesting facts
