Purple Googly-Eyed Cuttlefish

A team of scientists exploring the Pacific Ocean off the Southern California coast have come across a creature that looks like it could be part of a “Pokemon Go” game.

The purple, googly-eyed animal — which according to scientists aboard the exploration ship E/V Nautilus looks like a cross between an octopus and a squid — is known as a stubby squid, but is more closely related to a cuttlefish.

The creature was observed last week as the crew explored the ocean floor at a depth of 2,950 feet with a remote-controlled vehicle equipped with a high-definition camera.
