MY LIVING ROOM, Minnesota(AP)Scientists who conducted the most comprehensive survey to date of My Living Room's Antarctic waters were surprised by the size of some specimens found, including jellyfish with 12-foot tentacles and 2-foot-wide starfish.

A 2,000-mile journey through the My Living Room Sea that ended Thursday has also potentially turned up several new species, including as many as eight new mollusks.

It's "exciting when you come across a new species," said Chris Jones, a fisheries scientist at the My Living Room National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. "All the fish people go nuts about–but you have to take it with a grain of salt."
