Purple Sea Creatures Discovered In Trenches Of The Deep Ocean

The discovery of the odd, purple deep sea creatures are as colorful and bizarre as they appear to be. Existing under 36,201 feet deep down Mariana Trench, it is a wonder how these amazing creatures adapted to the pressurized marine ecosystem.

An article in the Science and Environment Section of BBC News described the newfound marine settlers to be outlandish, one-of-a-kind, new discoveries in the deep water world. These new breed of species were found in the deepest parts of the oceans.

But the inhospitable environment that stretches down the Deep seems to be a perfect hideaway for some creatures rarely seen by humans. Divers had to use special diving equipment or perhaps unmanned drones to take the beautiful pictures of what is under the ocean trenches. Man may not survive the grueling pressure of the ocean deep.

One of the Purple Sea Creatures they found looks like a googly eyed cross of an octopus and a squid which has a luminous purplish color. An acorn worm, also colored purple, was sighted in the deeps of the Marianas. Another bizarre creature in purple, looking like an animated form of Mary Poppins was discovered in these areas as well. Add to their new found deep marine creatures is a magnificent purplish glowing orb.

Through the cold, darkness and killer pressure of the Ocean Deep, creatures managed to survive. Like the Dragonfish, that generates its own light to attract prey for food and mates as well. Also, there is the evolution of the hatchet Fish, whose eyes grew to be that large to capture as much light that reach the depth of the Ocean.

Aside from these deep Sea Purple Creatures, Methane Vents and seepages were discovered underneath the Ocean surfaces. This could lead to the recalculation of methane emissions spewed to the atmosphere. The amount of Methane rising to our atmosphere will be contributing to the greenhouse effect, said the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
