Ancient Sea grasses!

Cool sea grass!!! 100,000 years old and 6000 metric tons! In the Mediterranean sea!!

I know a lot of people have blogged about the ancient sea grass Posidonia oceanica, but it really is so cool. Maybe I can go see it someday! It is also disappearing at a rate of 5% per year, so that is the sad thing about it. Climate change is implicated.

On a funny note, Clay is scared to go visit the grasses because there may be sea velociraptors hiding in there!
