After years of research, scientists believe they’ve finally found out what vampire squids eat – and the news is pretty gross.

A new study reveals that the scary looking mainly eat poo, snot and dead fish.

The findings come as a bit of a surprise, as it was thought they may eat live prey like their relative, the octopus.

The scientific name for what they eat is ‘marine snow’. In the past researchers have caught vampire squids in nets and tried to figure out what they ate by examining the contents of their stomachs.

But now with the use of new high definition video scientists have been able to monitor the animal’s eating habits accurately.
