Found: new deep water coral!

And this little mystery fish--a drawing I did in 1996 (original is appr 18"x22"--this is a scan of a photo I've just relocated)--unidentified specimen though he may be--is happy to hear some very cool news circa 2007:

Researchers have made an exciting discovery several thousand feet below the sea near Honolulu: new deep water coral including lemon-yellow bamboo coral and a giant sponge!

Samples have been taken for DNA analysis, and I'm pretty psyched about it, how 'bout you?
