I read about it on AOL. Pretty neat. Goes to show that even in one of the most wildlife devastated areas of the world, something 'new' can be found. It's probably been there for centuries and the rest of the world didn't know about it until now.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

That last paragraph just hit me the wrong way. I think the article was cool except for that paragraph. It jsut struck me as if they were almost possitive that there we no more other mammals to discover.... then again, i am probably overinterepereting it again (i seem to do that a lot)

Not to worry...they've made this prediction several times over and have always gotten it wrong.
