What is the bottom of the Antarctic sea?

What is the bottom of the Antarctic sea? The melting of two giant ice blocks in this area recently created the opportunity to 'millennia' for scientists to discover a beautiful seabed ecosystem hidden beneath the ice.

Many exotic creatures have been discovered underneath this cold seabed, including orange-tipped starfish, fan-finned fish and many portable sea cucumbers. This is the first time scientists can list a list of species below two ice blocks that last about 10,000 km 2 on the Weddell Sea. Before that, they could only observe them through drill holes through this ice.

A group of 52 scientists from 14 countries collected about 1,000 species, some of which are thought to be new species. Specimens of these species will be analyzed to determine if they are really new species.

Currently, international data warehouses only recorded 5,957 species of marine life, but still about 11,000 species have not been discovered.
