Each year, scientists discover thousands of new species: 15,000 (an average of 40 per day) by some estimates. However a recent ocean adventure in Philippine waters yielded a potential discovery of 100 species in a single day. During a marine expedition this spring, a zoologist and his crew stumbled across a trove of sea slugs covering a section of the sea floor. The discovery– a clear opportunity for scientific discovery– was described as an “easter egg hunt”.
