Creepy Creatures At Our Door!
When we watch those oceanography shows on TV and they have the crazy deep-sea footage of the monsterous spikey glow-in-the-dark fishes, I always think these deep caverns are in far off, exotic locales. Like perhaps some deep trench in the mid-Atlantic, or farther, like the Indian Ocean or the waters off Australia.
Now I find out they're in my backyard - the Monterey Bay! I suppose I shouldn't be so surprised. The Monterey Canyon is one of the deepest regions of the Pacific Ocean - more than two miles deep. Creepy monstrous fish, nibbling at my toes when I'm diving! Eek!
Off the coast of California an undersea canyon harbors an array of deeply strange creatures.
