Recently posted news of the discovery this week on Facebook at Carlsbad Caverns, National Park enlightened all to a pool that was found to be “completely pristine” with signs of bacteria found in the water, that was seen to have “evolved without human presence”
The excursion into Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico into these “virgin” cave passages; that was called this, as it is believed no human has ever been there before!
An isolated pool with strange murky liquid that resembled something like a thick lime yogurt and that was enclosed by white frosted rock, was discovered by the leader of this excursion, Geoscientist Max Wisshak. He explained to McClathy news that the colour of the water is a misconception though and that it is actually “crystal clear”.
Discovered 700 feet below the opening of Lechuguilla Cave, is one of the 10 lengthiest caves worldwide and also known as a ‘sister cave’ in the wilderness of the Carlsbad Caverns National Park. This incredible National Park encompasses 46,766 acres and is where this interesting find was discovered in 1993, but only released in October.
Rodney Horrocks, Chief of Natural and Cultural Resources at Carlsbad Caverns National Park said “This pool has been isolated for hundreds of thousands of years and had never seen light before that day.”
