Deep Sea Dumbo and 1000's more newly found marine organisms.
Deep Sea 'Dumbo' From pole to pole, surface to frigid depths, researchers have discovered thousands of new ocean creatures in a decade-long effort now nearing completion, called the Census of Marine Life. And there may still be several times more strange creatures to be found.
Grimpoteuthis looks like a primitive "dumbo" fish; the creature moves by flapping its ear-like fins. Researchers with the project have found about 5,600 new species on top of the 230,000 known. They hope to add several thousand more by October 2010, when the census will be done
