THis new species of coral was found in the pacific and has been refered by locals as: "Bigus". its trully a sight to be seen.
THe background story is that research marine biologist were looking into reports that this coral has chemical byproducts that could be used in treating depression, erection problems in males (duh) and aids in sexual stimulation in some females. also repeated exposure to this species of coral has been linked to better health.

Yep I'm getting on and my snorkle's starting to sag. I'm only in to shallow dives now with a lot of assistance from my dive mistress. I'm not into ripping the ocean off as man does with polverised seahorse and shark fin to boost their sex life. But if they can harvest that type of coral and get it out onto the market by the used by date (before it starts to smell) I would think just from the looks of it, it would boost my performance.

Could Deeper Blue market it?
