The Octopus Might as Well be an Alien

Our oceans are full of bizarre, alien-like creatures. Some seem like they’re straight out of an H.P. Lovecraft story, and there are almost certainly countless entire species yet to be discovered. We actually know more about the moon than our ocean floors. That’s because, if I remember correctly, it is more difficult to penetrate water than air or solid ground...
