The Nautilus is an exploration vessel that's been exploring the sea floor off the coast of California, and recently, it spotted something rather curious.
Upon closer inspection, it turns out it's the cutest goddamn sea creature ever discovered. Those eyes!
Like, you just want to squish him and keep him forever.
And people are legit in love.
Can you blame them?
The only thing cuter than the wee thing itself is the reaction from the scientists guiding the Nautilus. "It’s like some little kid dropped their toy!" said one.
Another can be heard squealing "SO CUTE!" at least twice. Back at ya, cuties.
They also debate whether the creature is an octopus or a cuttlefish, but it's actually a "stubby squid." Despite the name, stubby squids aren't squids, but are closer to cuttlefish.
