                BT: I saw this on CNN the other day. It is amazing to me that there are so many things like this at the bottom of the ocean that remains undiscovered.

                No telling what will be discovered next as underwater exploration technology improves.

                  Now that I've read the article about this mysterious creature, I can honestly say I would NOT eat it, it is too beautiful and too interesting and should be protected from all predators, including man. I apologize for my first response as I thought it was someone's idea of a joke, and should have read the article right from the start.

                  Oh, the many wonders of nature.

                    You can bet that in many parts of the world some folks would pay anything to eat it.

                        I agree, protect these guys! There probably aren't that many of them.

                              A little off subject, but the other day while at the Chicago Field Museum visiting the Pompeii exhibt, my son and I went through the new "Evolving Planet" exhibit. They had a numeric counter that showed the number of species that had become extinct that day which numbered 30 by about 4 PM . The current average per day is now 83. Not long ago it used to take an average of 4 years to lose that many.

                                  That looks delicious! I love eating newly-found species. Probably need to get a handful of these- eat-em like popcorn.

                                    I'll bet it tastes horrible. It is a Deep sea creature - lots of them have ammonia in their blood
