When we hear volcano, most of us probably a huge mountain erupting with hot magma and ash, spewing over the surrounding land, and leaving nothing but destruction in its wake.

But did you know that 80% of volcanoes are found on the seabed?


Even more incredibly, many creatures live near, and even on, these active volcanos. So what kind of life would you expect to find next to a volatile volcano and its highly acidic surrounding water?

Take a look at D News’ video explaining some of the more interesting finds near underwater volcanoes.
