Ice Creature

NASA has discovered a shrimp-like creature living in a lightless area 600 feet beneath an Antarctic ice shelf. The 3-inch long creature was found using a small video camera lowered to take the first-ever images of an ice shelf’s underside. Scientists previously believed nothing could live in that environment.

This shrimp-like creature could “lead the way to larger expeditions into harsher environments that scientists previously believed could not support life.”


  1. looks (kind of) like a shrimp, swims like a shrimp, and probably tastes like a shrimp, but it’s not a shrimp? And I thought this world couldn’t get any wierder.
