This Venus fly-trap anemone, living 4,920 feet (1500 meters) below the surface waters of the Gulf of Mexico, is only one among thousands of photogenic species cataloged by the decade-long Census of Marine Life, which is drawing to a close this fall.

Indeed! Maybe it's because the scientists are not paying attention?

“Most Ocean Species Remain Undiscovered”

Reminds me of your survival theory.

If they are undiscovered, how do they know how many of them there are?

Wow.....we need to spend a few hundred billion dollars to make sure no underwater sea creature is undocumented and therefore disenfranchised....by being nameless...

It’s bad for their self esteem ....imagine .... Floating around the vast ocean with no name....

It’s species discrimination ...

How could this possibly be known? If its undiscovered, you can’t know it’s undiscovered. Maybe everything’s been discovered. Or maybe there’s only 3 more species left undiscovered. This is called a wild a$$ guess.
