The deep sea is the largest habitat on our planet, and most of it remains a mystery to us.
Those areas that scientists have been lucky enough to explore have revealed some remarkable creatures, from fish with transparent heads to giant spider crabs measuring over five metres from claw to claw.
Meet Museum scientist Diva Amon, a deep-sea biologist who has researched the deepest places in Earth's oceans.
Discover the incredible wildlife enduring in these remote, hostile environments, as well as evidence of increasing human impact on these ecosystems.
