Vampire squid

The Vampire squid first appeared before dinosaurs, about 300 million years ago. It has not gone through many changes during that time and is considered a living fossil.

In order to protect itself from predators in the deep sea, the Vampire squid is able to turn itself inside out and give off a spiny appearance!
