Scientists discover new marine species under the Indian Ocean

Gigantic slugs and hairy crabs were some of the six species of marine creatures found hiding away close to the hydrothermal vents below the Indian Ocean. Researchers came across this one in a million catch while observing the seabed, which is practically the size of a football stadium. They found some pretty amazing things, which we would never ever think that could exist.

The head of the research team, from the University of Southampton, Dr. Copley believes that these new beings could be found anywhere in the Southwest Indian Ocean. It is possible that it can migrate to other sites. However, no one is certain how dense the population can be close to the vents. Before activities of deep-sea mining and mineral exploration can take place, they need to explore and investigate more of the area.
