Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

"Beware the vampire squid, I say! This eight-armed deep-sea monster is out to drink your blood! Hoo hoo, haha! I only jest! Ahem! The vampire squid does, in fact, live deep in the ocean where almost no light pervades. But while it looks like it could nibble on your nibbles on bits of dead plankton and algae instead. By all accounts, the vampire squid is a gentle sort who squirts bioluminescent goo at foes. So how did it get the eerie official name "Vampryoteuthis infernalis? That means "vampire squid from heck," you see. The problem is the squid's "cloak." Its arms are webbed with velvet-red skin and lined with toothy spikes! Plainly put, this genial squid looks for all the world like a vampire who went for a swim."
