It's been hard for scientists to build a special type of submarine that can dive to great depths. Wouldn't it be something if there were prehistoric creatures living there? (I wouldn't stay for a photo either!) Thanks for reading, Carolyn

Very well written, and I'm sure a winner! I don't know what kind of fish that is but it would scare the crap out of me, if I was there!.....pat

If anyone knows what type of fish that is in the water with the diver in the photo, I'd really like to know!

Sounds like a nature's paradise for sea life..great Haiku (I know modified according to contest rules) you wrote, Carolyn. Thank you for the footnote--I had no clue. All the best for a TOP win.

Because of its depth, we haven't been able to explore the Mariana Trench fully. New species can be found there! Thanks for reading.
