The Depths Under The Blue

Our Earth formed around 4.5 billion years ago and throughout the cycle of evolution, we’ve documented a variety of different flora and fauna from different periods on land and water, mostly vertebrates and invertebrates that lived on land. The existence of such organisms exists in fossil records unearthed by palaeontologists and archaeologists today. But even today there are so many secrets that are yet to be unearthed that lie in the depths of the ocean.
