Earlier this month, scientists from the California Academy conducted valuable research in the Galapagos. The team of scientists aboard the Johnson Sea-Link submersible made an exciting discovery of a new catshark species. This newly discovered species was later named after the award winning filmmaker, Al Giddings, who has previously filmed and produced a Galapagos program for the Discovery channel entitled Galapagos: Beyond Darwin. The species has been given the Latin name Bythaelurus giddingsi.
Scientists in the UK have made a remarkable discovery of a staggering number of a new crab species in South Georgia. This new crustacean currently has no scientific name; however, due to their apparent hairy chests, have been nicknamed ‘The Hoff’ after the American Baywatch star, David Hasselhoff.
