Sharks Found Swimming Inside An Active Volcano

Sharks Found Swimming Inside An Active Volcano

There's already plenty of reasons to be scared of sharks - them being vicious enough to tear you in half is just one.

Because sharks have so many scary features, you don't really need another reason to avoid them. But the fact that they're hardcore enough to swim around in an active volcano is probably one.

Kavachi, a volcano located in the Southwest Pacific Ocean, in the Solomon Islands, is where scalloped hammerhead sharks, silky sharks and a sixgill stingray were spotted swimming.

Ocean engineer Brennan Phillips had led a team to the Solomon Islands in search of hydrothermal activity, but when lowering a deep sea camera into the peak of the volcano, they found sea-life activity.

Brennan said: "You never know what you're going to find. Especially when you are working deep underwater. The deeper you go, the stranger it gets."

"No one has ever looked in the deep sea there, period. No one's been out to anywhere in the Solomon Islands and gone deeper than a few hundred meters or deeper than a scuba diver has gone, really. So we were very excited. We thought there was a lot of potential."

It is clear that while the volcano is erupting it'd be impossible for anything to live in there, which is why the discovery is very interesting.

The sharks could 'die at any moment', so the project has thrown up many questions.
