New Species of yeti crab found near volcanic vents

An unknown species of yeti crab “lost world” is found in the oceans of Antarctica near hot, hydrothermal vent along with strange albino octopus. Robot Submersible with cameras found a new deep sea creatures like crabs, barnacles, sea anemones and an octopus.

These groups are livelihood approximately volcanic vents profound under the southern ocean, where hotness can arrive at 382C. Hydrothermal vents with sustaining minerals are found to be the living place of these unknown species of the deep sea.

Unknown species get their energy from the chemicals such as hydrogen sulphide instead of getting energy from the sunlight.  “The first survey of these particular vents, in the Southern Ocean near Antarctica, has revealed a hot, dark, ‘lost world’ in which whole communities of previously unknown marine organisms thrive.” A strange pale-colored octopus, as so far nameless, was also found almost 2,400 meters profound on the sea bed.

Does deep sea creatures “Lung Fish” can walk?

Latest research found out that African lungfish has the ability to walk with their fins under the water. Generally these types of fish don’t have the feet but the behavior of this fish gave surprise to every researchers. This deep sea fishes was kept at lab in the glass tanks, on observing its movement under the water they also made the studies on the land surface and researches found that Lung fish of this type can walk with their pelvic fins.

Lungfish and other so-called lobe-finned fishes are supposed to be close livelihood relations of the first known tetra pods-four-limbed animals with backbones. This study tells us that walking behaviors are not elite to tetra pods in that period and proposes that the evolutionary way to land on foot began with their finny ancestors. The result further propose that relic paths before accredited to near the beginning land tetra pods with feet or at least toe like digits may instead have been left by lobe-finned fishes touching along the waterbed.
