It’s hard to believe that there are vast swaths of our planet that we’re yet to explore. Why are we so focused on going into space before we’ve even discovered everything on our own planet? For example, there is so much about the ocean floors that we know next to nothing about! With new sights and creatures being discovered all the time, we can’t help but wonder what else is out there, hiding in the dark, deep waters of the ocean. Here are a few of the coolest and most extraordinary discoveries from the bottom of the ocean that were made so far. Grab your scuba gear and get exploring! We can’t wait to see what they find next.
A Dump Truck
The ocean is no place for any vehicle except a boat, yet more trucks and cars can be found on the bottom of the sea than you might expect. It’s amusing to imagine people driving them into the water, but fortunately, that’s not what’s happening here. Most of the time, there’s a straightforward explanation: they fall off shipping vessels as they’re being transported across the sea for sale.
It’s hard to imagine, but this dump truck was probably in pristine condition when it landed on the bottom of the sea. It never even had the chance to drive on the road and hang out at construction sites. Instead, it’s probably become a home for fish. We imagine little cartoon fish that love darting in and out of all the crevices!
