Day as an Aquanaut

I had the distinct honor and privilege of visiting the Aquarius, the underwater research lab owned by Florida International University.

Search for the Elusive Flap Jack Octopus

I joined my colleague, and fellow Caldwell Lab graduate, Stephanie Bush on a mission to search the deep sea to collect and study one of the two species of Flap Jack Octopus. While we did not find and Flap Jacks, we found a few other exciting deep sea cephalopod species. Be sure to check out the Tentacles exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium to see deep sea cephalopods in person!
