As everyone knows, the tsunami in Southeast Asia was devastating both in the loss of life and economically to the region.
However now that the clean up is underway in the region, deep sea creatures that live too deep to be studied are being found scattered throughout the wreckage. These creatures were washed up on shore when the waves hit.
Amazing what lives so far below the surface isn't it?
