Several strange creatures including a psychedelic octopus have been found in frigid waters off Antarctica in one of the world’s most pristine marine environments.

“This is virgin geography,” said expedition member Gauthier Chapelle. “If we don’t find out what this area is like now following the collapse of the ice shelf, and what species are there, we won’t have any basis to know in 20 years’ time what has changed and how global warming has altered the marine ecosystem.”

Looks like melting polar ice has some benefits in regards to marine life studies.

Although, I wonder how long this new sea life discovery will last without the cover of an ice shelf and if it really was only a matter of revealing what lies underneath rather than the idea that there's more food now since there's less ice?
