This baby octopus was probably using its large black eyes to search for a meal when it was snared by Census of Marine Life scientists last month.

In addition to collecting zooplankton, worms, snails, and jellies, the expedition gathered over 120 fish species, including a young oarfish, a rare male anglerfish, and what may be a new species of black dragonfish.
