TONMO wants to automagically embed, but the video says "embedding disabled by request" and the embedded version doesn't seem to work for me. If you put "http://www.youtube.com/" in front of "watch?v=z1q8UhcIu40" you can watch it if the embedded version doesn't work for you either.

it's amazing how many hoops you have to jump through to avoid getting "automatic embed" now...

That is definitely one of the deep creatures that has fascinated me. I wish there was a write up somewhere. I never expected one would live even coming up to atmosphere. I don't think there is a worry about mass collecting ;>) but I sure would like to know more about what they found out and how long it lived and if they even had the chance to try to put it in a large, deep aquarium and ...
