Nicknamed the "flapjack octopus" until an official scientific name is given, the adorable sea creature looks like a character you might see in Finding Nemo.
Stephanie Bush, a postdoctoral fellow with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute will be responsible for naming the creature.
"I was thinking about what my options are [for naming it], and I wanted it to be something indicative of the characteristic of the species. Since they're so cute, I thought I could name it the Opistoteuthis adorabilis," Bush told ABC News.
