New octopus species discovery, video

This video from the USA says about itself:

Larger Pacific Striped Octopus

March 7, 2013

Academy biologist Richard Ross, who studies octopuses and their relatives, has spent the last 13 months raising and studying the behavior of this recently rediscovered species, along with Dr. Roy Caldwell of the University of California, Berkeley. While they are still working on a formal description of the species, which doesn’t yet have a scientific name, they didn’t want to wait any longer to share this spectacular animal with the public. Visit our Animal Attraction Exhibit to see her.
