Researchers discovered a ghostly white octopod on the ocean floor, and people are already nicknaming it "Casper."By Carter Woodiel | March 5, 2016
Say hello to what could be a brand-new species of octopod.
A probe from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration spotted this little guy over 14,000 feet below sea level off the coast of Hawaii.
As you can see, this isn't your typical octopod. An NOAA scientist points out how the creature's lack of muscle and ghostly white color means it could be an undiscovered species.
