Vampyroteuthis infernalis

Man, is this funky, or what? I often go down to Tolweb for a browse when I am bored and have exhausted other things to look at, and this week they gave us Vampyroteuthis infernalis: "It occupies meso- to bathypelagic depths throughout the tropical and temperate regions of the world's oceans."

This is one funky critter, although I am not sure why it is called sea-vampire.
