Did you know there are 409,543 named species in the deep ocean?
Now you can get to know them better, thanks to this computer scientist, Neal Agarwal, who was inspire by the marine life and has developed a fun website that allows users to scroll down to discover the different animals and plant life that live at varying depths of the ocean.
As you move towards the bottom of the ocean floor, the website provides interesting facts and figures about marine life.
For example: close to the ocean surface, at around 30 meters deep (98 feet), familiar fish such as the Atlantic salmon and the striped bass are seen, alongside the polar bear, who is known to dive to similar depths in order to hunt for food. Scrolling deeper reveals the killer whale at around 100 meters deep (328 feet), and the green sea turtle at around 170 meters (557 feet).
