Possible new octopus species discovered off Hawaii

Posted: Updated:

HAWAII (CBS 8) - Scientists have discovered a new species of octopus while on a deep sea dive near Hawaii.

They found a creature sitting on a flat rock more than 14,000 feet below the ocean surface.

It appears to lack pigment cells, creating a "ghost-like" appearance.

The octopus also has all of its suckers in one row on each arm, rather than the typical two rows.
