London Museum Dredges up Fascinating Creatures From the Deep Sea

A 2-metre-long grouper fish, a giant clam shell and a Hawksbill sea turtle are among the subaqueous delights on display at a new exhibition at the Natural History Museum. Sea fans, fossils, sponge crabs, a venomous blue-ringed octopus and hundreds of other specimens are also featured as part of "Coral Reefs: Secret Cities of the Sea," which opens Friday at the London museum. Running until September 2015, the show also includes a live coral reef and a virtual dive through imagery from the Catlin Seaview Survey, which studies the world's coral reefs. Specimens collected by Charles Darwin during his HMS Beagle expedition from 1831 to 1836 are also on display.
