You might get drenched if you dive into a deep sea trench!
A deep sea trench is a long narrow depression in the ocean with steep sides that occur in the maximum oceanic depths.
Deep sea trenches are formed when an older plate is shoved under a lighter plate and deep into the mantle.
Earth has 20 major trenches, 17 of which are found in the Pacific Basin.
There is a vast amount of deep sea life that can only be found down deep in trenches.
Deep sea trenches are usually less than 60 miles wide and range from 24,000 to 36,000 feet deep.
Animals such as this shark can only live in places like deep sea trenches because their bodies are used to the water pressure, if they come to the surface they will eventually die.
