Extraordinary New Species "Psychedelica"
The Seattle Times reports the discovery of a new species of anglerfish that has been given the name "Psychedelica". It seems to be the same fish that was discovered 17 years ago, but was mis-classed as another because its colors faded so drastically before the biologists studied it. Now that there is video footage and live testimonial, it is apparent that the fish moves in an utterly new fashion. Scientists are in a tizzy having found a new species.
Full coverage available through the Seattle Times - including video footage.
