They include a new kind of octopus discovered living one and a half miles below the surface - and a kind of “yeti crab” nicknamed the Hoff by scientists because it has a a hairy chest like David Hasselhoff.

The remarkable discovery of the new forms of life around deep hot volcanic vents have changed the theories of scientists on how life has developed in the deep ocean.

They had been expecting to find similar life to other vents in the Atlantic and Indian oceans. Instead they discovered a unique world which may have existed in isolation for the last 15 million years.

Researchers braved severe storms and 16 metre swells to find the volcanic hot vents on the East Scotia ridge which runs under the Southern Ocean to Antarctica.

Temperatures reach up to 382C in the chimney-like vents but the waters are rich in certain chemicals. ..."

Zoe Brigham's curator insight, September 23, 2013 11:38 PM

This article is about a fish called the spookfish. This fish is very odd and unique because it uses mirrors to reflect light in order to see in the depths of the dark ocean. The spookfish's eyes have 2 parts to it: The actual pair of eyes used for vision. However, each eye has 2 parts. One part looks up and the other part looks down. Read more to learn!
