Some good news is here for this year! Marine biologists have spotted a real-life SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star in the Atlantic Ocean. This iconic duo was spotted about 1,885 meters underwater on Retriever Seamount (one of the four underwater mountains in the Atlantic Ocean).
Scientific names: Hertwigia (sponge) and Chondraster (starfish) #Okeanos
