Scientists found four species of roundworms in South African gold mines in the first discovery of multi-celled organisms in the deep, dark and hot areas, Nature reported, citing Tullis Onstott, a geo-microbiologist at Princeton University in New Jersey.One of the worms, found 1.3 kilometers (0.8 miles) below the ground at Gold Fields Ltd. (GFI)’s Beatrix mine, was named Halicephalobus mephisto in reference to the light-hating “demon of the underworld,” the London-based journal said. The worms feed on bacteria that grow on rock walls in biofilms that resemble “snot layers of gelatinous goo,” it said.

“The kids are calling it ‘the magic ticket,’ because it is a white pack with a stamp of a bunny coming out of a hat,” Ms. Richard said, encouraging parents to call 911 immediately if they find stamp bags. The boy told police he gave the small bags to three of his friends, but he also rides a bus and may have distributed it there as well. One parent already returned a bag of heroin to the school, police said.
