The vampire squid (Vampyroteuthis infernalis, lit. "vampire squid from Hell") is a small cephalopod found throughout temperate and tropical oceans in extreme deep sea conditions.

The vampire squid uses its bioluminescent organs and its unique oxygen metabolism to thrive in the parts of the ocean with the lowest concentrations of oxygen.

This organism has two long retractile filaments, which distinguish it from both octopuses and squids, and places it in its own order, Vampyromorphida.

he vampire squid can turn itself "inside out" to avoid predators.

During our overnight dive on June 27th, the E/V Nautilus team encountered a Vampire Squid (Vampyroteuthis infernalis), a deep-sea cephalopod.

It's named the Vampire Squid because of its deep color and red eyes, not because it feeds on blood.
