Marine biologists have found a whale skeleton on the ocean floor near Antarctica for the first time - and were stunned to find nine new species living on it.

The discovery was made almost a mile below the surface in an undersea crater by a team led by the University of Southampton.

It is the first to be found in the region - and only the sixth to be found anywhere.

Very interesting. I had no idea that natural whale skeletons are so rarely found.

Makes me wonder why we haven't found any bigfoot remains after all if we can occasionally stumble across whale remains (as rare as they are) under a mile of open ocean, you would think stumbling across a dead bigfoot would have happened by now.
