Sharks thriving in a volcano crater baffle scientists
Kavachi, near the Solomon Islands, is one of the most active submarine volcanoes in the world. The volcano's peak lies 25 metres below the surface, and when it isn't erupting the crater is overflowing with orange hydrothermal fluid which can be seen for a kilometre or more downstream. A team of scientists studying its geothermal activity made the unexpected discovery of sharks swimming around in the hot, acidic waters inside its crater.

The fact that marine creatures can adapt to live in such acidic conditions is hopeful for cryptozoologists in that it means cryptids may have adapted and lake creatures may still be around
