What I find so funny (ironic) is the fortune in money spent each year by ocean researchers to find new species - and this one just drifts up and is found...

Kind of reminds me of many hunting trips - spend hours/days in pursuit of your quarry, to come home and see one grazing in your yard...

In China they would grind it into a powder, and make soup of it, for aphrodesiac purposes.

Oops, I deleted the rest of my post! Looks to me like a lobster where you have to stroke its whatever nerve and then it sets up and you throw it in the boiling water and it turns red...but methinks there was a little hanky panky going out there in the deeps...

The pitch-black conditions at 3,000 feet below sea level are unfamiliar to most but riveting to scientists who have had the opportunity to submerge. The sea floor is full of loose sediment, big boulders and rocks, and a lot of mucuslike things floating in the water, which are usually specimens that died at the surface and drifted to the bottom.

"It's quite fascinating," War said. "When you get below 700 feet, it's a totally different world. Lots of fish have heads like a fish and a body like an eel. There are fish floating in a vertical position, with the head up, and don't move unless they're disturbed."

Yeah, that sounds fascinating, all right. Not quite as interesting as the Twilight Zone marathon on yesterday, but definitely a contender.

LOL! Try it, you’ll like it. If you run the dull side of a table knife down the center of a lobster, this will make the lobster curl and will paralyze it. That’s how you keep a live lobster from nipping you, for example. We always used to do this before dumping them in the pot, because then they’re paralyzed and totally without sense at that moment. Not that a lobster has a lot of “sense” going on anyway, of course.
