Researchers probing deepwater regions of Tasmanian oceanic waters have discovered a wealth of new species and previously unknown cold water coral communities. One of the most striking finds is a giant sea squirt which resembles a large venus fly-trap. Like it’s name sake, the sea squirt is probably adapted to catch passing animals and food items which unluckily pass through it’s trap-like appendage. Other creatures discovered at the site include giant sea spiders, fields of barnacles and purple spotted anemones as well as some new deepwater coral reefs.
