BBC – Earth – Glowing deep-sea corals found

In the depths of the Red Sea, a magical world exists.

It’s a world where corals light up the dark. They harvest light, providing an underwater rainbow of beautiful colours.

These fluorescent corals were already known to exist in shallow waters, but deeper down, new glowing coral reefs have been discovered.

    I didn’t realize they lived that far down in the deep.
