Now this is really fascinating, It always amazes me how science is still finding wonderful and exciting new things in our oceans...

these are really cool finds, i cannot get the pics , so you will have to go to the source and check them out...


(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.

Well that was really great photos.

It always amazes me how we find new creatures every so often. However this brings up a side issue. If evolution is supposed to happen to species every even few million years, 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?

But with that aside these pics are better then the last thread someone (can't find the link) posted about them.
(some are the same ones though)

Beautiful and fascinating photos — Earth still has many undiscovered surprises for us. Unfortunately, as soon as Mankind discovers anything, he sets to work destroying it.

Incidentally, one of the most fascinating photos is of the contributor of that artcle, Lauren Frayer... Man, she is a knockout.

It took us about 7 million years of evolution to ascend from smallish primates to modern Homo sapiens.

But all that means is that we evolved in a dynamically-changing environment — namely, the surface of the Earth, which experiences radical climatic changes on a fairly regular basis.

I would just guess that any terrestrial plant or animal is going to have to evolve and change a million times faster than those creatures living 4500 feet deep in the ocean, where the environment can remain unchanged for millions of years.

It's not at all unusual to find "prehistoric" creatures living in the remote depths for just this reason.

Well I guess that does explain it, I never understood how they keep saying prehistoric when things change. I didn't realize that the under water could remain that constant. Thanks for the info.
