By Sheri Skelton
1 Dumbo the elephant was well-known for his huge ears. Like its namesake, the Dumbo octopus has what appear to be two giant ears. They are attached to the octopus's body, which resembles a huge head. The attachments aren't really ears but fins. The two fins extend from each side of the body just above the octopus's eyes.
2 The Dumbo octopus moves itself through the water by flapping its fins. It also swims by waving its eight webbed arms. A third way the octopus moves itself is by shooting water through a siphon on its body. The Dumbo octopus is a very good swimmer. It can speed away quickly when predators are in pursuit.
