Photo of the Day: Deepwater Dweller

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released this photo, taken in 2002 about one mile deep near a huge underwater volcano near Monterey Bay, which shows this strange marine animal, thought to be a new species that has yet to be described or named. It is a type of mollusk, called ‘nudibranch’, that sheds its shell early in life. Scientists think there are millions of species, like this one, that have yet to be named or even discovered. (NOAA)
