The exhibition, which traveled from Paris, will be open until the end of the summer vacation on 31 August.

The animal species that survive the extreme deep sea conditions of total darkness, crushing water pressure, and freezing temperatures, display extraordinary and unusual shapes, sizes and colors, appearing at times more like extra terrestrial life than anything that could grow on the face of the earth.

The Deep is one of the most extensive collections of deep-sea life forms and images ever exhibited in the world.
