New Find in Antarctica

Post by Darwin420 » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:28 pm

This was a few weeks back, but did you guys hear about the new find in Antarctica? Pink eelpouts were found, types of sea spiders and these glass tulip like sessile species. I do not remember the exact species names and great details, but it is on the web if you just search "Antarctica species finding" or something along those lines.

But this glass tulip looking specimen is really cool, it looked like it belonged to the cnidarian phylum. I will look it up and find more details and videos and post it online for your guys enjoyment, if you find any info on, post it as well.

Thanks

OK, I looked up sites and I couldn't find it on the net other than articles you had to pay for. However, I found some cool species that were found last year, really unique and interesting critters.

No, just fascination and intrinsic behaviour to learn about the world. It saddens me when people have no motives or interests in life, you are not one of those guys, are you?

No I would not say you were being phallic, rather my comment was somewhat rude. So I would say My bad. Your right, the Antartic holds many treasures, yet to discover. I think I heard or read somewhere that science knows more about the moon than they do of the Antartica. In fact, scientist are trying to figure out how to drill deep into the ice to find new life. Only problem is they have not figured out how to do so without contaminating the ice during the search process. I guess they might end up amplifying the contaminants from Larry the cable guy's moldy buttcrack :)
