Wow!  I'm surprised more organisms don't use the ice like that.  Nansen described amphipods under the arctic ice, and some algae, but not much else.  So many people have looked for so long, but there's always something new.

It would seem that given their behavior of pulling back into their ice burrow upon approach they must have creatures which consume them as well.  Very interesting.

I for one welcome our alien overlords. I hope the mistreatment of them by a few of us have not doomed our entire species.

I for one welcome our alien overlords, and wonder what they taste like. I hope the mistreatment of them by a few of us due to insufficient cooking skills have not doomed our entire species to eating brussels sprouts.

I'm thinking that they should be sauteed in butter and served with wasabi and soy sauce.

And I'm still waiting for my invitation to the Bigfoot BBQ.

Had to cancel because the meat was too stringy.  Not even the pelt could be salvaged as that rank odor just would not come out. I've gone back to trapping beaver.

Back to the main topic at hand, it is great when we find stuff like this and expand our understanding of our world.

Stringy meat makes good stew, and stew is great in winter.  I could go for some Sasquatch stew.
