August 31, 2006For divers in Antarctica, it's no day at the
beach. Adventurers need to ditch their swimsuits for long underwear,
wool socks, and fleece glovesand that's just for under their
wet suits. But the extreme cold is not without its rewards:
Antarctica's waters teem with life unlike anywhere else on Earth.
Go beneath the surface and witness some of the world's oddest creatures: fish with "antifreeze" in their blood, giant-legged spiders, thousand-year-old spongesperhaps even a new species.
