Weird bubbling submarine volcano discovered

life around strange volcano

Dubbed as the ‘Moat of Death’ a volcanic realm is found down below the South Pacific Ocean. It is weird in all its features. The bubbling submarine volcano strangely includes a swirling vortex, a shoal of peculiar animals, and a zone of toxic waters, which are pretty appalling.

To add to your astonishments, the volcano sits within the crater of a magnanimous underwater mountain, which rises more than 4,500 meters (15,000 feet) from the ocean floor. It is located near the island of Samoa. The peak of the cone is just 700 meters (2,300 feet) below sea level, and it has become the convening zone of various sealife, especially eels.
