Godzilla Goby

Hello CCS friends,

An article was just posted today which revealed a new species of deep water goby.  This discovery was part of the Deep Reef Observation Project, funded by the Smithsonian Institution, which aimed to collect a live specimen in the southern Caribbean Sea.  This unusually large headed, bright yellow and orange colored fish was named the Godzilla goby, or Varicus lacerta.  Also thought I would add that I'm taking EEMB 106 Biology of Fishes Fall quarter, can't wait to learn everything possible about fish...take it with me!
