A huge portion of our oceans still remains a mystery. So, seeing footage from the deep sea is always a wonderful treat. The Schmidt Ocean Institute explored the Phoenix Islands Protected Area (PIPA) in the Pacific Ocean near Samoa, filming the diverse deep-sea creatures around the coral reefs. One of the most remarkable discoveries is a transparent glass octopus that looks like a creature from another planet.
The team of scientists puts their footage together in a four-minute video, so you can also discover this hidden and beautiful underwater world.
