Cute, Tiny Octopus Discovered. Now They Want to Call it 'Adorabilis'

If you haven't heard by now, in the scientific world, a cute little octopus was discovered. Actually, he was discovered a while back but now they want to name it something adorable... say, for instance, Opisthoteuthis adorabilis  Everyone's saying this pink, fist-sized octopus is a cross between the ghost from the Pac-Man video game and a Pokemon creature. What do you think?

Would you believe scientists have been collecting samples of this type of a flapjack octopus since 1990, yet little is still known about them - probably because they live between 200 and 600 metres down deep into the waters where temps are only a mere 6 degrees Celsius.
