M. Sullivan M. M. This infographic shows all the reasons the octopus is the coolest animal ever. It's no surprise to regular ScienceAlert readers that octopuses (yes, that is the plural form of the word) are the geniuses of the ocean.
Over recent years we've seen these cephalopods do everything from predicting the winners of the world cup and taking photos, to using a seashell as a weapon in a battle against its own kind. Now the team over at Business Insider has put together an infographic to celebrate some lesser known, but equally amazing, facts about our eight-limbed friends. The list was taken from science journalist Katherine Harmon Courage's book Octopus!
And can we just say that it makes us feel a little inferior about our boring human abilities? For starters, octopuses can grow back any lost limbs - suckers and all. If it's any consolation, octopuses are colour blind, and they live alone in homes that they like to decorate with shiny trinkets. Inconcebible: Un tiburón acude a un grupo de buceadores en busca de ayuda (Video) Uno de los animales más raros del planeta reaparece por primera vez en 30 años. Un antiguo animal marino, bautizado como "fósil viviente", fue descubierto por el biólogo Peter Ward de la Universidad de Washington, que lo observó por primera vez en el Pacífico Sur en los años 80.
Tres décadas después, el científico viajó hasta los arrecifes de Papúa Nueva Guinea con el fin de reencontrarse con uno de los animales más raros del mundo.

The places sharks have to go to avoid humans these days...
Scientists have discovered a population of sharks living inside an underwater volcano called Kavachi just off the coast of the Solomon Islands and east of Papua New Guinea in the South Pacific. The National Geographic Society-funded team had been inching closer to the highly active volcano over four days, trying to gauge how safe it would be to dive in.
Eventually, having not heard any tell-tale rumbles coming from the giant crater, they took the plunge so they could map the volcano's peak and study its chemical and geological make-up. And possibly even find life. "Absolutely, we were scared," one of the team, Brennan Phillips told Carolyn Barnwell at National Geographic. Even so, they had every reason to be nervous. To avoid the risk of burning flesh, Brennan and his team deployed submersible robots with underwater cameras into the volcano to be their eyes, and what they found was pretty extraordinary.

Rare Fish Performs "Virgin Births"—First Known in The Wild.
The smalltooth sawfish, one of the world's most threatened marine fish species, may have come up with a plan B.
Populations of this Atlantic Ocean ray are so low that it's possible some are producing young through a process known as "virgin birth," in which the females can fertilize their eggs without sperm. Seven immature smalltooth sawfish likely entered the world in this way, according to a new study published Monday in the journal Current Biology. Virgin birth—also known as parthenogenesis—isn't unheard of in sharks, snakes, and even birds. But this is the first known instance of virgin births in wild members of the shark family. Newly Discovered, Unnamed Deep Sea Creatures Found Off The Coast Of Puerto Rico. Exploring the murky depths of the Puerto Rican sea, scientists from around the world have found many previously undiscovered marine creatures.
The scientists captured the footage (video below) and streamed it online in real time using a camera attached to a remote-operated deep sea vehicle, allowing them to roam further down into the waters than if they had sent divers. “We're able to be in contact with up to 40 scientists a day,” said co-lead scientist Andrea Quattrini. They also have an internet chat room to discuss their observations with experts in marine geology, oceanography and taxonomy.

Seal of Approval. Deep Sea Explorers Stumble Upon A Creature They Can Hardly Believe Is Real. While there are no shortage of wacky ideas in science fiction about what creatures from other planets might look like, many weird and remarkable creatures can actually be found right here on Earth.
Recently, a team from the Nautilus Live expedition piloting a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) happened upon one of the most fascinating-looking lifeforms in the world: a rare, purple siphonophore roving through the ocean’s depths. Even the experienced deep sea explorers, well-acquainted with the marine animals, had a hard time accepting that what they were seeing was really real. “Wow. Okay, that’s awesome,” says one ROV operator. “I can’t believe that’s a living thing.” Amazingly, although this appears to be a single jellyfish-like animal, it is in fact a roving colony made up of thousands of individual organisms, called zooids, each contributing to the whole.

Monterey Bay is quite a spectacular sight right now, as parts are littered with thousands of electric blue, glass-like sea creatures that have been swept ashore by the wind. These bizarre cnidarians (a diverse phylum of animals including corals and jellyfish) are called Velella velella and they’re normally found floating on the surface of warm and temperate oceans. Beach goers are treading carefully along the coast, but they’re not dangerous and their sting isn’t harmful. Image credit: Velela, via Wikimedia Commons. These organisms have a flat, transparent float and an erect triangular sail that lets them take advantage of the wind.
