    Ancient Underwater Forest Discovered in the Gulf of Mexico

    Ancient Underwater Forest Discovered in the Gulf of Mexico



    Scuba divers exploring the Gulf of Mexico have recently come across an ancient forest which appears to have spent the past 50,000 years buried under ocean sediments.

    The forest, named the Bald Cypress Forest by researchers, is located close to Alabama's coastline, at a depth of about 60 feet (18.4 meters).

    It is made up of stumps and logs which cover an area of roughly 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers), The Inquisitr reports.

    Interestingly enough, it appears that researchers have Hurricane Katrina to thank for their discovering this ancient forest.

    Thus, this powerful storm is said to have dug out the tree stumps in 2005, when it hit the United States.

    I hope it doesn't get ruined now by people visiting it and destroying it now that it's discovered.

    Oh of course it will. There really needs to be a death penalty in Egypt for people pissing and shitting on and inside the pyramids.

    At least china knows how to deal with them
