Discover deep blue sea with fluorescent paint.
The deep sea is the lowest layer of the ocean, at a depth of 1800m or more. Little or no light penetrates so deep; it was therefore thought historically that no life would be found there. But on the contrary, sea life thrives in the deep sea. Almost miraculously, we are finding interesting, bizarre, never-before-seen life on every dive – so here are ten recently discovered deep sea creatures.
Are you scared?
Our students got together and made our own scarry deep sea creature using their imagination and few drops of fluorescent paint. We had fun.
