What Lives At The Bottom Of The Mariana Trench?


The Mariana or Marianas Trench is considered as the earth’s deepest part of the ocean. Not many people are aware of the hidden species that live at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. 

According to scientific research studies, there is an underwater canyon that is located in the deepest part of the Mariana Trench. Exploration of this helps  scientists  discover exactly what kind of creatures live at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

You might be amazed about the ecosystem that you can encounter in this area. To mention a few, you will see living creatures such as dragon fish, hatchet fish, and more. These amazing sea creatures have many features that can help them to survive in their dark and deep world. For example, the dragon fish can produce light that can help them to attract the attention of their prey and mates.

On the other hand, the hatchet fish is composed of huge eyes that can catch scarce light to help them see at these deep depths. Another creatures become red or translucent; this help them to absorb blue light that guide them to go deeply on the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

Meanwhile, the latter sea creatures that live in the bottom of the Mariana Trench also deal with various factors in their own ecosystem. It includes cold and pressure that may result in forming fats on their body cells. Look what they found when they sent a hydrophone to the Challenger Deep to study it:

The deepest part of our planet has also its own world where only these creatures can survive. And we haven’t even discussed unicellular creatures like Xenophyophores that are found down there!
