Habitat: South Pacific Ocean
The hairy critter was discovered hanging out around hydrothermal vents around 7,200 ft down below! It’s so crazy how these animals can survive at such amazing depths.
The “hairy” contain filamentous bacteria which the creature may use to detoxify poisonous minerals from the water emitted by the hydrothermal vents where it lives.
Cute and Useful! Coooool.
