Our friends at National Geographic have just published a series of amazing photos of new fossil species found in the Atlantic Ocean, including this one above, the Sea Cucumber Mountaineer, which is ‘normally found on the ocean floor’. Says marine biologist Monty Priede of the discovery: ‘We’ve always thought of them as slow-crawling animals, but they are actually capable of swimming. This is quite important on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, because otherwise there’s a risk of starving if they get stuck on a ledge somewhere’.
