This cool little pygmy seahorse was recently discovered living in extreme depths near the Coral Sea off the coast of Australia. At 13.7mm, this tiny species somehow finds a way to survive at an unheard of depth of 102 meters, which is virtually devoid of light. The researchers used remote operated vehicles to locate the seahorses and several types of corals that had never been seen before at these depths. Great photos and description of the expedition HERE.
