A deep-sea octopus species– the smoothskin octopus (Muuscoctopus leioderma), is typically found at depths of 800-4600 feet, but recently it has been spotted in water as shallow as 30 feet in Burrows Bay near Anacortes, Washington. Octopuses are exceptionally successful predators, so having them arrive in a new habitat could potentially cause significant changes to the ecosystems.
