    The Deep Sea (neal.fun) has illustrations (I think, or maybe they're photos) of sea life existing at progressing ocean depths - you scroll from the ocean top, all the way to the bottom, watching the reduction in amount of light for a while as you descend. I'm at 3177 meters right now and have travelled about a third of the way on the page; I'm looking at a cosmic jellyfish that looks like a UFO, not that much deeper than the headless chicken fish (a sea cucumber). At 10919 meters, it gets to Challenger Deep, which was the clue in the crossword puzzle I did today; a comment on the blog for the puzzle is where I learned of this site.
