Today you're going to learn about a squid that's been profiled by a couple of scientists in the latest Current Biology science publication. A paper has been released, you see, on the species Vampyroteuthis infernalis. That translates roughly to Infernal Vampire Squid, or Vampire Squid from Hell. It's not a pleasant name, to be sure, but it's fitting. This creature doesn't suck blood, but it does live as close to the underworld as you're going to get, in the deep ocean, and it does eat bits and pieces of other animals. Not living animals - unless by chance - but waste, mostly.
