When you go to the beach, have you ever looked down at the water and wondered, “What’s down there?” The ocean is huge. As in MASSIVELY HUGE. According to the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), only 5% of the ocean has been explored and charted by humans.
In our last blog, we talked about the not-very-bat-creature-like Vampire Squid and the ancient (but not really) Nautilus. This month, we’re going to be diving a bit deeper into the lowest parts of the ocean, where you’ll find creatures that can survive in the most extreme environments.
The scariest thing about the ocean is not knowing what’s hiding in it. Hopefully, the things you learn in this series will shine some light on the abyss and help you be a little less scared of the watery parts of our planet.
…or will it?
