A DEEP sea submarine exploration off Australia's southern coast has discovered new species of animals and more evidence of the destructive impact of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide on deep-sea corals.


This is a joint U.S. and Australian researchers project off the coast of Tasmania. They have been looking 2km - 4km down (amazing!) and have found some freaky new critters including, "...bizarre carnivorous sea squirt, sea spiders and giant sponges, and previously unknown marine communities dominated by gooseneck barnacles and millions of round, purple-spotted sea anemones..."

Thanks for the pics. I was excited by the thread title and so sorely let down by the image-less article. It seems like it is totally pointless to even publish anything like that without pics. Thanks for the new link
