New ocean creatures

Well, I'm officially not going to be blogging anything for the next several years in blog time (about a week or two in real time) as I'm on vacation. However, before I go, you must check out this Wired story about mysteries of the ocean's depth. A recent expedition 6,500 feet down found new creatures no one has ever seen before.

Brightly colored, about a foot long with a well-defined forepaw and tail, it looks like no known sea creature, said Olav Rune Godoe of the Institute of Marine Research in Bergen. The unknown animal was found crawling around the bottom at a depth of 6,500 feet.

Best of all, the article has pictures! Check it out.
