A team of scientists discovered a dark cave full of shrimp-like creatures during a recent experiment.

They found the never-before-seen habitat deep beneath the Larsen Ice Shelf.

This is a huge floating sheet of ice clinging to the east coast of the Antarctic Peninsula.

There the team drilled with a powerful hot water hose.

A camera was then sent down the newly created hole to see what was underneath.

Researchers were surprised to spot a swarm of tiny dots on their video feed.

At first they thought their camera was broken.

Then they found out they were looking at tiny crustaceans.

This came as a surprise as scientists had not expected such a thing to live in the deep icy waters.

Craig Stevens, a physical oceanographer at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) in Auckland, said: “In a normal experiment, you would jump up and down with joy when you saw one of these things.

“We were flooded. Having all of these animals swimming around our camera means that there is clearly an important ecosystem process taking place, which we will continue to study by analyzing water samples to test things like nutrients.”

Researchers believe there may be a vast network of lakes and rivers beneath Antarctica.

Research continues to try to find out more about this hidden world.
