Mysterious Creatures Found in Antarctica


Scientists investigating the icy waters of Antarctica said Tuesday they have collected mysterious creatures including giant sea spiders and huge worms in the murky depths.


Australian experts taking part in an international program to take a census of marine life in the ocean at the far south of the world collected specimens from up to 6,500 feet beneath the surface, and said many may never have been seen before.

Wonder who's going to be the first moron to accidentally discover they're venomous.

Some of the animals far under the sea grow to unusually large sizes, a phenomenon called gigantism that scientists still do not fully understand.

More room, lots of food, larger animals. Shit guys I didn't even go to college and I can make a guess-timate on that one.

"Gigantism is very common in Antarctic waters," Martin Riddle, the Australian Antarctic Division scientist who led the expedition, said in a statement.

It's also very popular amongts wealthy housewives and people in Texas.
