Regions and physical features of the deep sea environment relative to depth, notice how temperature, light, and biomass all decrease with increasing depth. Representative species are a mesopelagic (200-1000m) lanternfish, bathypelagic (1000-4000m) ceratioid anglerfish, benthopelagic (just above bottom) rattail and halosaur, and benthic (bottom) snailfish and greeneye. Many mesopelagic species undergo a diurnal vertical migration (DVM) to shallower waters at dusk, returning to deeper water at dawn.

auroramachine asked: Mr. Chris Pratt, you are the 3rd Chris that Marvel has collected so far. Do you think there is something special in your name or it’s just Marvel has a Chris fetish? 
Chris Pratt: There’s definitely something special about my name. I’m joining pretty amazing company. Both of those guys are really incredible. I haven’t had a chance to meet Hemsworth yet, but Chris Evans… when I saw him, he literally ran across the room, gave me a huge bear hug, lifted me up, and was like, “Dude, you are going to love this!” It was like my brother congratulating me for like making the team. It was pretty cool. We bro’d out. There was a lot of love there… He’s a great guy. The point is, there’s something special about my name. You want your son to be successful? Name him Chris.

Winterdim Wallpaper made from the cover art from the book: Theodora Viran—“Thea”—has a way with forests, blossoms, creeping vines, composting, paranoia, and sudden death. She sees deception in every shadow, a trap in every word, and the universe has always been someone else’s manipulative game, but when she makes a promise to save the life of a childhood friend, it becomes a promise she cannot break without breaking her view of the world. http://www.SaltwaterWitch.com
