Oxygen addiction is a terrible thing.

OMG YOU GUYS! Look! Look!

Animals that do not require oxygen!

This is so cool! And so weird!

I saw something about that today, too -- here. That link has a bit more biology-technical information; in particular, without oxygen, they don't have mitochondria, and have something else instead.

I'm glad you posted this; when I first saw the link, I thought this was just something in the a-few-cells level of multicellular, not a full proper millimeter-long animal with tentacles and everything!

Aha, that link has a link to the actual paper. Excellent, I was having trouble finding it among all the news articles. Thanks!
