There is parts down there that no one has seen out being crushed by the pressure  of the water such as the deep point  in the ocean in the whole world. and this part of the ocean is known as the Challenger Deep. This is area is home to very different animals that live down there some we might not  even known about yet. he some that we do know that we do know of is the Frilled Shark, Giant Spider Crab, Atlantic Wolf-fish Pair, Fang-tooth Fish, Six-Gill Shark,Giant Tube Worms,Vampire Squid Pacific and Viper-fish.

This animal is very interesting here is a here is somethings that I find interesting about this animal. So this animal can live up to 100 years old. also another thing about this animal is that its back helps blend in with all the rocky terrain its back is bumpy and camouflages the crab.  these crabs also have Exoskeletons that help protect them from larger predators such as on gaint spider crads
