(July 16) -- Australian scientists using high-tech cameras at record depths have captured photos of never-before-seen deep-sea creatures under the Great Barrier Reef that are believed to have existed there since prehistoric times.
The photos offer a fascinating glimpse of marine life in deep dark waters more than 4,500 feet below the ocean's surface. Among the bizarre species believed to have been discovered are giant six-gilled sharks, an octopus relative that lives in a shell and swarms of new crustaceans that look like they're straight out of a science fiction movie.

how could these be pre historic creatures and not have evolved at all? Shouldn't they be speaking a foreign language and have tiny villages by now? it took us humans how long to go from hair ape to space explorers?
