A strange cehpalopod has been found near Keahole Point on the big island of Hawaii. It appears to be a cross between an octopus and a squid, which is being called, you guessed it, an octosquid. The specimen, which has 8 tentacles, an octopus head and squid mantle, was brought up from a depth of 3000 feet by a pipeline operated by Natural Engery Lab of Hawaii.
