Scientists detect "unknown species" under the Indian Ocean


British scientists have discovered what they believe could be new species in a volcanic vent in the Indian Ocean.

A research team from the University of Southampton, UK, used a remote control robot to take pictures at a depth of nearly two miles.
It is estimated that some of the detected marine creatures, including types of crabs and snails, have not been seen before.

Experts are now studying the evolution of these species.
