vampire squid? Why the hell is it called that? What are its vampiric features then?

It may as well be called zebra squid.

I did misread my info, the 150 million-year-old fossil was from a species of the same family now extinct, although the vampire squid appears to have been around for just as long, a pretty long time, like a living fossil.

"most squids haven`t been changed in one million years case closed
no explanation needed hopefully"

then i`d still call them all pretty old, but I said millions of years. The vampire squid has fossils from around 150 million years ago (unless I misread my info) It`s also in its own order.

"its not really a living fossil it has been recently discovered as most deep sea creatures are"

wait, do you mean it`s not a living fossil because it was recently discovered? that has nothing to do with it. Anyway, the video said towards the end (4:15ish?) that it has remained unchanged for millions of years. I would call that a living fossil.
