How absolutely incredible that so many new species are being documented for the first time as stated here ... "Probably the greatest diversity of life is in the deep sea," said Fred Grassle, director emeritus at the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University in New Jersey. "We're just beginning to learn about it."
New discoveries are so critically important that surely our impact on our oceans will 'spawn' deserved protection Acts like stopping all the oil drilling ...
Thank you Tom so much for this enlightening and uplifting news story... such a cutie little octopus :-)
