Where does the Dumbo octopus live?

Answer

The Dumbo octopus lives in ocean areas around New Zealand and Austrailia, in the Monterey Bay in California, in the waters around Oregon and the Philippines, as well as in Pupua, New Guinea. It was named for its similarity to Dumbo, the flying elephant featured in a Disney movie.

A Dumbo octopus lives just above the ocean floor at depths between 9,800 and 13,000 feet, which is deeper than any other species of octopus. Well adapted to elevated water pressure and cold temperatures, a Dumbo octopus uses its large, flapping ears, the webbing between its tentacles and shooting water from a funnel in its mantle, or body covering, for water propulsion.
