In the Gulf of California, Mexico, a team of researchers dove deep and found a series of venting mineral towers. These towers were up to 10 meters across, 23 meters tall, and were “teeming with biodiversity and potentially novel fauna.” And they were colorful – so very colorful. The most shocking part about this situation is the fact that these same spots were visited a decade ago and none of what we see here was there – it’s all new!
