Video Hantu - Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest collection of coral reefs located in Australia made a number of species living strange place with a horrible appearance.
Video - This unique marine animals found at the base of the Great Barrier Reef. The team of researchers from the University of Queensland, Australia using high-tech cameras operated remotely to capture images of life at a depth of about 1500 feet below sea level.
Marine Biologist, Justin Marshall - who led the research team - said the cameras captured a few species, among them, six finned prehistoric shark, fish oil - a kind of Mackerel, Flock crustaceans, and many fish undefined - that looks like creatures in science fiction.
The team also found Nautilius - which is still a family with an octopus - is still alive in its shell, as they did for millions of years.
"Just as understanding life near the sea surface, we have to 'dive' deeper than the walls of Osprey Reef to discover life in the depths of 2000 meters, where sunlight does not reach it," Marshall said as the CNN page is loaded.
The team took taxonomists and natural science experts from around the world to investigate the marine life of Australia's largest biosphere. Also to identify the creatures they find there.
"Makin in reaching the ocean, you will find the species completely new."
This is not just search for new creatures. Marshall said the sea creatures can help researchers to better understand the human brain disorder - which causes abnormal conditions, such as epilepsy.
How? He said, most knowledge about how the function of nerve cells and their communication was first pioneered by research on nerve cell giant squid.
Our lack of understanding of life at sea in triggering debate lately, particularly related to oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
"I think we are more than a month researching the deep ocean," said Lisa Levin, a professor of marine biology at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
