That's really interesting. It's kind of weird to think what all is down there...truly a whole new world.

Always facinating when they discover new stuff (and they do all the time). My Cuz specializes in DEEP marine biology. You can read about some of her Adventures HERE (http://oceanexplorer.noaa.gov/explorations/explorations.html) but to give folks an idea, she was one of the scientists behind the Blue Planet series.

The beach ball squid didn't look much like a beach ball much to my disappointment. I had pictured this fat spherical squid with stubby arms.
