Carnivorous sponges, blind creepy-crawlies adorned with hairy antennae and ribbed worms are just some of the new characters found to inhabit the dark abysses of the Southern Ocean, an alien abode once thought devoid of such life.

Recent expeditions have uncloaked this polar region, finding nearly 600 species of organisms never described before and challenging some assumptions that deep-sea biodiversity is depressed. The findings also suggest that all of Earth's marine life originated in Antarctic waters.

I am hopefull that nature will pull through all the crap we throw at her, as we still do not know even all the things that live here, not by a long shot.
wild.

Not exactly an excellent post... He/She just copied and pasted the first 3 paragraphs from the article as his own post. Good find anyways. I love the picture of the army of sea cucumbers. How creepy....

i've got a thing about en mass animal photos, they get me a bit 'little lobster grab your gun'

with all these new finds in marine life and, to a lesser but still large extent, insects, i'm not surprised it's common prophetic belief that they'll be taking over. statistically they already have - as a species we're outnumbered billions to one.
