Deep beneath the ocean’s surface, surprisingly cute pink octopuses creep along the seafloor. Some of them have super warty skin, and some are smooth. Scientists weren’t sure if these octopuses were even members of the same species, and they didn’t know how to explain the differences in the animals’ looks. But a new study shows that the deeper in the ocean the octopuses live, the bumpier their skin and the smaller their bodies.
