Old Man Walking Cephalopod

Seems like the Indian Ocean is getting more attention these days. Now its more than pirates, as another ocean expedition has discovered new species around the seamounts of the Southern Indian Ocean.

According to Pravda.ru, the scientists discovered a new species of large squid almost three feet long, among several new fish and crustaceans, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, which led the expedition. That includes this weird, rickety-looking fellow here. Sounds like a successful adventure but they definitely need some better images.
