Vampire squid have really gross eating habits

Vampire squid have really gross eating habits. The vampire squid is far crazier and much nastier than the honey badger could ever hope to be. Marine biologists from Hendrik Hoving and Bruce Robison of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute have discovered how the squid sustains itself—and no, it doesn't feast on the blood of virgins. Rather, it feeds on "marine snow," a term for the chunks of corpses and feces that float down to the 3,000-foot depth the solitary squid hovers near.
