Deepest living animal found "Devil Worm" lives over 2 miles below surface.
Ran in to this by mistake, but still interesting.



A "devil worm" has been discovered miles under the Earth—the deepest-living animal ever found, a new study says.

The new nematode species—called Halicephalobus mephisto partly for Mephistopheles, the demon of Faustian legend—suggests there's a rich new biosphere beneath our feet.

Before the discovery of the signs of the newfound worm at depths of 2.2. miles (3.6 kilometers), nematodes were not known to live beyond dozens of feet (tens of meters) deep. Only microbes were known to occupy those depths—organisms that, it turns out, are the food of the 0.5-millimeter-long worm.

Basically all our assumptions about life and how those assumed criteria apply to and affect the search for life elsewhere in the universe... are worthless.

This is a very very good thing, it increases our chances of finding extraterrestrial lifeforms immeasurably.

More than we are actually capable of measuring at this moment since we have no other examples except our own planet.


Start drilling below the surface of Mars, heck maybe even deep within our own Moon there exists some hitherto unknown biosphere.

Every single place where humanity has speculated it would be impossible for life to exist - we've found life every time. Whether nuclear reactors, inside volcanos, or locked miles below the arctic ice, we find life EVERYWHERE.

Life exists EVERYWHERE. It's on the moon, its on mars, venus, and probably many others,

Hey is it maybe the Mongolian death worm ??

The Mongolian death worm (Mongolian: олгой-хор&#10​93;ой, olgoi-khorkhoi, "large intestine worm") is a creature reported to exist in the Gobi Desert. It is generally considered a cryptid: an animal whose sightings and reports are disputed or unconfirmed.

It is described as a bright red worm with a wide body that is 2 to 5 feet (0.6 to 1.5 m) long.[1][2]

The worm is the subject of a number of claims by Mongolian locals - such as the ability of the worm to spew forth acid that, on contact, will turn anything it touches yellow and corroded (and which would kill a human),[3] as well as its reported ability to kill at a distance by means of electric discharge[citation needed].

Though natives of the Gobi have long told tales of the olgoi-khorkhoi[citation needed], the creature first came to Western attention as a result of Professor Roy Chapman Andrews's 1926 book On the Trail of Ancient Man. The US paleontologist was not convinced by the tales of the monster that he heard at a gathering of Mongolian officials: "None of those present ever had seen the creature, but they all firmly believed in its existence and described it minutely."[1][2]

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24806519


They dug new shafts at the bottom of old mines looking for water samples.

Snip:Onstott and nematologist Gaetan Borgonie of Belgium's University of Ghent first discovered H. mephisto in the depths of a South African gold mine. But the team wasn't sure if the worms had been tracked in by miners or had come out of the rock.

To find out, Borgonie spent a year boring deep into mines for veins of water, retrieving samples and filtering them for water-dwelling nematodes. He scoured a total of 8,343 gallons (31,582 liters) until he finally found the worm in several deep-rock samples.

This is further evidence directing us to the spectacular hypothesis of the berzerk thread or at least to the contrarians of peak oil ( the ones who say that oil is a renewable resourceproduced by chemical or possibly biological processes deep within the earth)...

... or even the Leviathan of the Bible and Shea and Wilson's Illuminatus trilogy, or as in a post above, the Sand Worms of Dune.

Now a tiny complex life form has been found at 2,000 meters depth. Maybe that worm is crawling on a creature so large that we are mistaking it for a landscape feature of the planet.
