And while amphipods are all very interesting, why not showcase some of the amazing diversity of fish you might find in the deep as well. 

i think the deep sea showcases evolution better than any habitat on earth to be honest. These fish have all lived an incredibly isolated life for millions of year, and just look how different and amazingly adapted they are to the incredibly harsh conditions of the deep. Amazing. Interestingly, the deep sea comprises something like 60% of the earths surface as well, so it is actually the largest habitat on this planet.

National Geographic has put together a great gallery of ocean images. They’re definitely worth a look.
