Vampire fish fossil ‘lost’ during the Hungarian revolution rediscovered



Vampire squid have been lurking in the dark corners of the ocean for 30 million years, a new analysis of a long-lost fossil find.

Modern day vampire squid (hell Vampyroteuthis) can thrive in deep, oxygen-poor seawater, unlike many other squid species that require lower habitats along continental shelves. Few fossil ancestors of today’s vampire squid survive, however, so scientists are not sure when these elusive squid developed the ability to live with a little oxygen.
