Scientists from Florida said that they had discovered a new animal species in the Gulf of Mexico, the United States. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced that they had found Chromodoris Fentoni, a type of sea snail without a shell is commonly referred to as'nudibranch'.

Biologists find these animals after a fisherman donated specimens from the Gulf of Tarpon Springs to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg in 2009. Sea slug 'nudibranch' have gills and have no shell.

Sample findings Fentoni Chromodoris directly sent to the California State Polytechnic University, where verification of these animals ever documented. A curator of the Wildlife Research Institute says it's very difficult to find a species new to science.
