True. But I still like Leary.

New Hebrides trench: First look at unexplored deep sea

Scientists have had the first look at the life that thrives in one of the deepest spots in the ocean.

An expedition to the unexplored New Hebrides trench in the Pacific has revealed that cusk eels and crustaceans teem more than 7,000m (23,000ft) down.

The team used an unmanned lander fitted with cameras to film the deep-sea creatures.

The scientists said the ecology of this trench differed with other regions of the deep that had been studied.

"We're starting to find out that what happens at one trench doesn't necessarily represent what happens in all the trenches," said Dr Alan Jamieson, from Oceanlab at the University of Aberdeen, UK, who carried out the expedition with the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand.

What the?

Spider Tailed Horned Viper (Pseudocerastes urarachnoides) -

This rare and understudied viper has adapted a different type of hunting strategy. Unlike its cousins who use their tails as warning rattles, this small viper uses its strange looking tail as a caudal lure. The growth on the end of its tail resembles a spider crawling about, and it twitches it in such a way that captures the attention of animals that prey on spiders such as small mammals and birds.

Really bizarre, but really cool. It's amazing how nature can adapt things to new purposes.
