Some may think that the animal shown in the picture above is a fantastic creature from a sci-fi film. Others may mistake it for the facehugger from the Alien franchise.
Well, let me assure you that the creature is 100 % real. It’s a squid and its scientific name is Promachoteuthis sulcus. It still doesn’t have an official common name, however most refer to it as the the squid with the human mouth (or something similar), for obvious reason.
The photo was taken in 2007 by scientists at the German research vessel "Walther Herwig". The caught was caught in the ship’s nets, at a depth of about 2000 m (~6,560 ft), near the Tristan Da Cunha islands.
