Wouldn't life on Europa have similarities to the life at the bottom of our sea floor where sunlight does not reach them and it's very dark?

Have you watched this movie?

I agree that the likelihood of some form of life on icy moons like Europa is pretty high especially under that ice sheet.
It would be pretty cool if there were some sort of octopus like species there but I'd it were discovered, as one poster stated, we wouldn't know about it for a while. They might announce they found life but I'm sure they won't say exactly what kind of life they found.
Also, the idea of caves and deep caverns on Mars maybe having life in them is very plausible. The caves can definitely shield a good amount of radiation and ice and water could be prevalent. Take a look at some of our largest caves on earth. Most of the biggest ones have not been fully explored and many have their own ecosystems that have life found in no other environment on earth. And, just like caves on earth, there could be large amounts of fossils to be discovered.
Mars and Europa are just 2 examples. Imagine a lot of the other moons around the gas giant planets. I thought I remember reading about a moon around Neptune or Uranus that was unique and of interest to scientists. Anyone know or remember this?
S & F for this post OP thanks!
