We actually know very little about the ocean depths that cover 70% of our planet. The deepest, darkest depths of the oceans still hold 95% of their secrets. That far down, it is hard to believe there could be anything actually alive down there.

But way down in the cold and dark, where the hydrothermal vents spout superheated water into frigid depths, living creatures live and thrive. One of these creatures, a type of snail known as Chrysomallon squamiferum,is carefully guarding its survival superpowers.


Magnetism Is His Superpower

The remainder of his shell is made of pyrite, a mineral commonly known as fools gold. His shell is MAGNETIC. He gets the metals used for the shell from the mineral-rich hydrothermal undersea vents where he makes his home.
