Scientists have found a lake under an ocean in the Gulf of Mexico, dubbing it the “Jacuzzi of Despair” for its high salt content and temperature that has killed creatures who accidentally fall into it. The “crater-like, circular, brine-filled pool” rises about 10 feet above the seafloor, with brine pouring out of one side in a “spectacular waterfall,” according to the findings published in the journal Oceanography. … The pool has its own distinctive shoreline, with a wall populated by mussels and other, more cautious organisms. Within the pool, carcasses of large crabs dot the barren floor.
