Ten new possible species could change everything about the way we think about deep-sea life in the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the creatures are so strange, it is hard to know which direction they swim or where their mouths are. The images were captured by researchers from the University of Aberdeen during more than 300 hours of diving with a remotely operated vehicle between 2,300 feet and 12,000 feet deep along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the largest mountain range on Earth, which runs down the center of the Atlantic Ocean between Europe and Africa on the east and the Americas on the west. Three of the species, which look like colorful wavy worms, belong to a group of creatures called Enteropneust, which is believed to be the evolutionary link between backbone and invertebrate animals. Previously only a few specimens of the group, from the Pacific Ocean, were known to science.






















Even with the oil spill killing so much sea life im glad there other creatures being discovered and hopefully we (humans) do not harm them.

These are not `crazy-looking` deep-sea creatures. They are beautiful. I am pleased to see variety. I sure would get easily bored with sameness. Lovely photos, yes!

Wow! Some beautiful pictures there.

It just goes to show how much more we have to discover about our own planet let alone other planets.
