National Geographic has listed some of the most surprising sea animals discovered in 2006. The species, dubbed Promachoteuthis sloani, was caught along with around 50 other types of squid during trawls as deep as 3 kilometers (1.2 miles) by a Census of Marine Life team. This previously unknown squid was among 80,000 deep-sea organisms collected from the northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a chain of undersea mountains halfway between Europe and North America.
