Nah' I saw the special about them on PBS the other night. They kinda' remind me of the Rolling Stones. Ya' know, you think they are extinct, and then you find out they are still kicking somewhere. :D

Well, 50 years ago is recent (re: their discovery) compared to how long they've existed. There's some indication (or hope) that they might exist in various warm water environs around the world, not just in the pockets known in the Indian Ocean though they're so reclusive that discover is difficult. I think it's interesting that they can only live at depth & die at surface pressures; also that they seem to've adapted to a low-food supply environment by slowing their metabolism & speed. [Something fishy there :rolleyes: ]
