An Adelieledone polymorpha, one of the four new species of octopuses that researchers have discovered in Antarctica that have anti-freeze venom, is seen in this undated photo released to Reuters. Researchers at the University of Melbourne hope to analyze the venom to see if it has medical uses. The discovery of the octopus species, during a six-week expedition to Antarctica in 2007, was published in the journal Toxicon.
