Seriously Spooky Squid
Talk about a sea monster. This 1889 illustration of a vampire squid paints these mysterious creatures in a creepy light fitting, given that the scientific name for vampire squid, Vampyrotheuthis infernalis translates roughly to vampire squid from hell.
In fact, vampire squid are the only known cephalopods that dont hunt for their prey (so much for their namesake). Instead, theyre the seas garbage disposals, eating marine detritus that floats down to the depths like snow.
