    Cephalopod that has spidery, seven-metre-long (20 feet) arms (Discovered in 2001)
    Spotted in the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and in the Gulf of Mexico
    Even sighted at a depth of 4,734 metres (15,534 feet) - almost five kilometers (three miles) below the surface - in the western Atlantic, off the coast of Brazil
    It is not very attractive.
    The squid's arms are longer than those of any known squid species.
    The arms are held in an unusual position: spread outward from the body and then bent anteriorly.
    In a recent encounter with a submersible, the squid seemed to have problems dislodging its arms from the vessel's hull.
    For food, the squid may use its long arms 'like a living spider web.'
    It moves like a ghostly figure in the inky black of the ocean deep.
    When the Alvin capsule brushed some of the animal's limbs, it didn't move, but eventually it kind of said, 'OK, I'm out of here,' and flapped away slowly.
    It makes you think where have we been and where have they been all this time.
