Underwater Forest Discovered By Divers in Gulf of Mexico

Underwater Forest Discovered By Scuba Divers in Gulf of Mexico

A bunch of scuba divers have found a new phenomenon in the Gulf of Mexico. It is a first of its kind and will amaze the world by the every fact that it exists. The terrain happens to be a Bald Cypress Forest. According to LiveScience, it is covered up by ocean base debris. It got preserved due to an oxygen-free milieu that had been in the surroundings since the past 50,000 years. The ancient forest of the depths got revealed from its previous hidden position thanks in no small part to Hurricane Katrina more than eight years ago. Some of the trees are in their original state. They even give off a fragrance that is brand new when they are cut and sampled. This is a wonder to behold. The stumps cover an area that is equal to half a square mile. They exist many miles from Mobile, Alabama.

The Gulf of Mexico is the main underwater region that houses these wonders of the deep. The discovery however will not last forever. It is a matter of a few years until wood-burrowing marine animals destroy the forest off the face of the internal fathoms. About a year after Hurricane Katrina, an indigenous fisherman found a site that was teeming with fish. He went underwater in a scuba diver suit and found much to his surprise that there was a whole forest of trees there.

Since new finds have always been a favorite haunt of smugglers and pilferers, the site was kept a well-guarded secret for some time. After a couple of years in 2012 the owner disclosed his find to another friend. When this man went down he discovered a whole panorama of trees. And the good thing was that it was in mint condition. It had attracted several species of marine life.

The divers who visited the terrain felt they were in a fairy land of sorts. The explorers and researchers then arrived and made an effort to pry out the secrets of the magical marine forest. A sonar map was laid out of the area which gave additional information regarding the ins and outs of the fabled forest. The find will surely attract marine botanists in the coming times.
