A new video from the Schmidt Ocean Institute gives us a closer look at a beautiful underwater world that you need to see for yourself.
The video was released earlier this month, and it includes a ton of footage captured in the waters of the Pescadero Basin, in the Gulf of California. In the basin, multiple hydrothermal vents around the Pescadero Fault create some amazing geological structures, including upside-down mirror ponds.Don't Miss: 10 crazy Cyber Week deals still available on Sunday (last chance!)
This underwater world thrives around hydrothermal vents
Considering the toxicity levels of the water found around the Pescadero Basin, it’s extremely intriguing to see how much life thrives in such harsh environments. The waters found nearly two miles beneath the ocean surface here can often reach upwards of 500-degree Fahrenheit. Those extreme temperatures, along with the hydrothermal vents around the area, create a unique underwater world unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
