Sea creatures are often either poisonous or have a very intimidating appearance because that’s the only way they can survive in the rough and tumble world of the sea. Despite a creature’s external features or potentially lethal nature, it can still be quite adorable.

Scientists have photographed tiny octopi, found among the plastic garbage floating at the Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park. The animals turned out to be babies of the Octopus cyanea, which is a dangerous predator — but also a very cute one.

The biologists released the little sea creatues back out into the open ocean, where they can survive.

This octopus, which is about the size of a pea, uses toxins in order to paralyze small fishs, crabs, and shrimp.
