ABSTRACT
The article reports the discovery of Kiwa hirsuta, a creature that looks like a lobster. The creature was found within the midnight zone of the ocean. It is named after Kiwa, a mythical goddess of crustaceans. Crustaceans are sea creatures with an outer skeleton like lobsters and crabs. Though Kiwa hirsuta looks like a lobster, its features are so unusual that it does not fit into any family of crustaceans. Scientists had to create a whole new family for Kiwa hirsuta, which will be called Kiwaida.
