The deep oceans are some of the least explored and understood places on Earth.

One of the major challenges animals need to overcome is how to survive under extreme pressure and in perpetual darkness.

See some deep-sea animals from the collection, meet the curator who looks after them and find out how these survivors can see through the darkness and even produce their own light.
