Are there new animals and sea life that we are discovering in the arctic ocean now that we can get to it because of the melted ice?

    Antarctica may seem like a frozen land home to not much other than the penguins, but recent findings because of melting ice caps prove that it’s not. In 2007, new species were found that were previously sealed under layers of ice. Sea squirts, amphipod crustaceans, starfish, octopus, and glass sponges were among the animals found. Scientists have reason to believe that some of the species they collected have moved in recently due to the lack of ice, which may encroach upon species that had been living there for thousands of years.
