A horrific phenomenon has been discovered by scientists while having a research in a ground-breaking ocean floor in Mexico, as reported by New York Post.

According to Daily Star, in the bottom of the ocean in the Gulf of Mexico, a toxic saltwater pool that formed over years through a geological process has been called the "lake of death".

It is 3,300 feet underwater that consists of bacteria and salt.

It creates an underwater of toxic chemicals that includes methane gas and hydrogen sulfide. It contains deadly concentration of chemicals that are extremely poisonous, as further reported by Daily Star.

Professor Erik Cordes, one of the scientists who discovered the site, told Seeker, "It was one of the most amazing things in the deep sea," said Cordes.

"You go down into the bottom of the ocean and you are looking at a lake or a river flowing. It feels like you are not on this world," he added.

Scott Wankel, a biogeochemist, told the science website Seeker "It's warm, but super-salty," based on further reports by the New York Post,

"Its 65-degree temperature often lures poor, unsuspecting crabs and other bottom feeders looking for food. "When they fall in, they die and get pickled and preserved," Wankel added.

Bacteria, tube worms and shrimp are the only creatures that can survive the deadly conditions of the so-called "Jacuzzi of despair," as per NY Post.

By studying these kinds of organisms, scientists are expecting to be successful in learning life on other planets.

Lastly, as per reports on NY Post, Professor Cordes said that, "There [are] a lot of people looking at these extreme habitats on Earth as models for what we might discover when we go to other planets.

"The technology development in the deep sea is definitely going to be applied to the worlds beyond our own," said Cordes.
