Sourced by unaltered Magellan Spacecraft readings. Apparently the Russians are very interested in trying to find life on Venus, perhaps they are seeking technical wherewithal for their space program.
Hydrogen sulfide powered bacteria, if they can actually make it at 400° C (720° F), might, with special conditioning, qualify for life on the "ocean floor" of the Venusian atmosphere.

Carbon has the ability to form very long chains of interconnecting C-C bonds. This property is called catenation. Carbon-carbon bonds are strong, and stable. This property allows carbon to form an almost infinite number of compounds; in fact, there are more known carbon-containing compounds than all the compounds of the other chemical elements combined except those of hydrogen (because almost all organic compounds contain hydrogen too).
The simplest form of an organic molecule is the hydrocarbon
In particular, the "Scorpion" appeared around the 90th minute from power on camera, but after 26 minutes he was gone, and in its place left a groove in the ground.
In these panoramas Ksanfomaliti discovered several objects that appear and disappear in a series of consecutive shots.
Strange Life Clearly Seen Water heated as high as 760°F (404°C) by magma from Earth's interior billows from a seafloor chimney. The surrounding ocean is just a few degrees above freezing. When the two fluids meet, iron sulfide precipitates, giving the "black smoker" its color. In these dark depths, chemosynthesis—based on thermal and chemical energy from the vents—is the primary mechanism sustaining life.
This Russian scientist could be very right about this , the reason I think he's right because it shows that life can flourish on volcanic grounds.

Average temperature is well above 1500 Fahrenheit. Whatever would live there cant be carbon based. Atmosphere is primarily Co2. Our hypothetical scorpion would have to resist high temperatures and breathe the way trees breathe.
