Experts believe they found a new form of life inside a cave in southern Minnesota.  A manager at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park told MPR News that their staff found some potentially unknown millipedes in the 13-mile Mystery Cave.  They’re tiny, translucent, and have no eyes.  The park sent samples to University of Minnesota researchers to learn more, but it could take years to determine if they’re a new species.
