National Centers for Environmental Information is making viewers' skin crawl with this set of creepy ocean postcards. Triggering feelings of curiosity, fear, and awe, these rarely depicted images reveal what lurks below the beautiful blue waves many are so fond of.
The images are taken from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s photo collection and are part of a bi-monthly image series. The series incites curiosity and raises awareness about the lesser known bottom dwellers that live hundreds, sometimes thousands of feet below us.
Paired with fascinating scientific facts, these creepy postcards feature non-photogenic ocean critters, while offering an accessible, and fun way to learn about the diverse species we share our world with.
