Oct 22, 2010: Incirrate & Cirrate

Yeah an Octopus, but when they're living down deep the names get fancier.

As part of a NERC funded project the deep-sea cephalopod fauna of the NE Atlantic was described for the first time (Collins et al., 2001). The benthic fauna is dominated by octopods, with incirrates abundant at depths 500-1500 and cirrate octopods dominating at depths greater than 1500m.
I can't tell if this is incirrate or cirrate, it's got features of both.

1500 meters, that's blowout preventer territory.

This one is definitely cirrate.

Aw hell, they're all edible.

That gross critter is mighty graceful.

It's a sea critter. It probably tastes good fried.
