Four inch single cell amoebas
Where? In the depths of the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of our world’s oceans. These amoebas (Xenophyophores) were discovered by researchers at the Scripp’s Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Check them out in this brief clip. At this depth and pressure, these organisms are surviving in one of the most uninhabitable places on Earth.
Here’s a close up of the Xenophyophores found in the Galapagos Rift:
