Close-up images showing the discovery: the top-right and bottom-left images show close-up views of the site hosting chemosynthetic tubeworms (T) and shrimp (S) containing chemosynthetic bacteria. The numerous small conical animals are gastropods (marine snails) that also appear to be associated with vent activity. Credit: NOAA Okeanos Explorer Program, MCR Expedition 2011, NOAA-OER
