To get a better look at the volcano's inner workings, the team dropped a heavy deep-sea camera into one of its craters. Kavachi is located off the remote Solomon Islands, just northeast of Australia.

When it was time to review the footage, the researchers discovered a wonderful world in the underwater plumes.

They saw this willowy guy and let out a collective cheer.

But that's not all: There was also this hammerhead...

...and silky sharks! So smooth, so silky.

Since the volcano is active, the animals are essentially in danger while in the volcano.

For now, they nailed it.
