100 New Marine Species Discovered in Mysterious ‘Twilight Zone’

12 posts in this topic

More than 100 new species of marine animals have been discovered off the coast of the Philippines, in a previously unexplored portion of the Coral Triangle. Located on the southern end of the Verde Island Passage, these waters are considered to be the most biologically diverse in the world.

Researchers from the California Academy of Sciences visit the tropical reefs year after year to investigate the secrets of this underwater wonderland. In the latest seven-week venture, funded by the National Science Foundation and conducted this spring, their expedition took them from rocky shallows to depths reaching 150-500 feet deep, in a region known as the Twilight Zone.

Awesome pics of some of them inside the link. I love the ocean and all the strange creatures that live there. This place must still be pristine. I hope it can stay that way.

My wife showed these to me yesterday somewhere else. Beautiful.
And to think that someone would say they all happened by accident!
No design!

Very cool! :cool: There's so much ocean left to explore, no telling what else might be there.

There's even much more amazing and complex things within just one
human body than there is in the entire universe!

​That's the same video I've been posting for a few years now, and even on
this forum just the other day on another thread. The title is different called
"Nature by Numbers"
