On dry land, most organisms are confined to the surface, or at most to altitudes of a hundred meters, the height of the tallest trees. In the oceans, though, living space has both vertical and horizontal dimensions: with an average depth of 3800 meters, the oceans offer 99% of the space on Earth where life can develop. And the deep sea, which has been immersed in total darkness since the dawn of time, occupies 85% of ocean space, forming the planet's largest habitat. Yet these depths abound with mystery. The deep sea is mostly uncharted, only about 5 percent of the seafloor has been mapped with any reasonable degree of detail—and we know very little about the creatures that call it home. Current estimates about the number of species yet to be found vary between ten and thirty million.

Imagine all the creatures through out the centuries that have become extinct on dry land. I don't know if this bird existed, but the movie Journey to the center of the earth, where they had that blue bird, that flew and glitter like came out of it's wings. People must have hunted those if they did exist. But in the beginning, this world must have been a really beautiful place to live in.

What? There has to be a creator? Have you ever though of how perfect of a machine our body is? How it can have problems and repair them by itself It can get virus' and learn the strain of virus after beating it to always know when that virus comes in contact with us. It makes it's own antibodies to know when foreign agents come in and try and take over. To me a human being, in everything it does, is the most beautiful and perfect machine. Yet people do not look at it and say there was a creator Why discredit the beauty of nature and give all of her credit to a nonexistent god? Give credit where credit is due

While I do appreciate the link to the remarkably diverse DEEP OCEANIC unique wildlife... I do hold my reservations for starring or flagging... (Oh yes!) ... because the title was so incredibly misleading These are not 'aliens'... they are as much as a Mexican in L.A. Thanks all the same Merry Christmas
