Strange tracks found in underwater sinkhole

A groundbreaking mission to the bottom of the Great Blue Hole in Central America has uncovered a mysterious find along the ocean’s seabed.
The groundbreaking voyage kicked off in December 2018, and saw the group descend to the bottom of the 125 metre hole to find out exactly what lives inside.The Great Blue Hole is a large underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize.It lies near the centre of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 62 miles from the mainland of Belize City and is part of the larger Barrier Reef Reserve System, a UNESCO heritage site.
The Blue Hole is thought to have once been a huge cave on dry land around 100,000 years ago but as the ocean rose again, the cave flooded.Using two submarines, the group hoped to discover what sat at the bottom of the mysterious hole,which was discovered in 1971 by underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau.
Despite uncovering various features in the murky waters, some discoveries were unable to be identified, including a set of strange tracks at the bottom of the hole and seemed to show little human impact.
