    These new species include insects, spiders, corals, sea pens, sea urchins, sea stars, “colorful” sea slugs, and more.

    Thank you for posting that. I enjoy seeing the sea life of the ocean. I amagine that there's still many more unseen sea life yet to be discovered.

    No need to only imagine that.
    In nearly every expedition-trip made with a remote operated underwater vehicle or even with a man-steered dive-boat they find 'never-seen-before' species, especially in the deep sea.
    Today we only know a little bit of what variety is there.
    Nature is amazing but can be destroyed also amazingly fast.
    What has been developed in millions of years only in our generation the variety of what we know now can easily be cut to half if we go on like we still do.

    Wonderful picture.

    I am so totally fascinated by this picture and as I am an amateur painter I would like to make an oil painting of it to decorate one of my walls. Size 3x4 feet. Thanks for showing.
