Natural pool ‘untouched’ by humans discovered deep inside a cave in New Mexico

Earth is a mysterious place, and it confines lots of amazing things from the human eye. One such amusement has been discovered recently by Geoscientist Max Wisshak from the “sister cave” at Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico. 

It’s a cave pool, situated just below the entrance to the sister cave. This pool was discovered in 1993, but not even a single human soul has set the foot inside due to the possible danger of the place.

Pool water creates heavenly scenery because of the cyan-blue color, which is said to be a result of an optical illusion. It means the water is crystal clear.

The pool was found 328 feet below the chamber of the cave and has been the habitat to millions of microorganisms yet to discover. No other creatures were found. The pool is just 2 feet long and only inches of depth. Mater minds had to face the problem of determination of the actual age of the pool. That is because the caves and other formations believed to be about a century old so that the pool could have been more.

Several bat skeletons were found in the area. They said to be about a thousand years old. It means the pool has also been on the earth for a thousand years. So, we could only have a guess about the wonders hindered by this beautiful ecosystem.
