<p class="p2"><span class="s3">Chilean biochemist Jenny Blamey, far right, walks with a member of her team in search of extreme organisms Jan. 26 in Punta Hanna on Livingston Island, part of Antarctica&rsquo;s South Shetland Island archipelago. Deep below the ice is a cold and barren world that by all indications should be void of life. But recently, scientists researching melting ice discovered fish and shrimp-like creatures. And in areas that haven&rsquo;t been exposed to sunlight for millions of years, scientists found a surprise: the DNA of a microscopic creature that looks like a combination of a bear, manatee and centipede.&nbsp;</span></p>Picture: <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Associated Press</span></p>
<p class="p2"><span class="s3">&nbsp;An amphipod lays on ice shortly after it was brought to the surface in a sediment lab in Antarctica. The animal was fished out of an area of total darkness far from the ocean, where it was living in a space of 30 feet of liquid water under the ice. Scientists are now trying to figure out where the animals came from, and even more importantly, where they get food to survive.&nbsp;</span></p>
