Recently, a seamount was discovered in the middle of the Indian Ocean and was teeming with a surprising amount of sea-life. 


Scientists from the University of Western Australia, Warwick University, and the Zoological Society of London used a baited camera to capture footage of the seamount and its residents. Located near the Chagos Archipelago, the unique geological feature is part of a marine protected area.

Scientists previously suspected a seamount existed in the area, but were excited to confirm their suspicions and capture footage of it.

Video footage reveals a diverse variety of ocean life, including hammerhead sharks, silvertip sharks, large groupers, and rays.
