    Do you think the bacteria and clams appreciate the sacrifice the whale

    I wish there’s more resources put into exploring the ocean. This is so
    intriguing, especially the part about organisms living in extreme
    conditions. And like Michael had said there are still so many questions
    waiting to be answered. I’d totally watch a SciShow Ocean channel if
    there’s one.

    Stage 4 is also possible, where the remains of the bones actually serve as
    a reef for polychaetes, crinoids and others.
    There are also specialized polychaete, the Osedax, that eats the bone
    itself for sustenance.

    Wait a tick. Stage 3 lasts 50-100 years, but we discovered whale falls 28
    years ago. How do we know of stage 3?

    What is the water temperature on the oceanic floor near equator? And does
    the latitude really matters in this case? Maybe closeness to the mantle
