Photographer Has Headed Into Areas Untouched By Sunlight And Found Creatures That Are Exploding With Colour

Wildlife photographer Danté Fenolio has headed into areas untouched by sunlight – deep seas, caves and underground – and found creatures that are exploding with colour.

First are these blue-spotted jawfishes, which live in tropical reefs in the eastern-central Pacific Ocean, including the Gulf of California. They live in burrows that they block themselves inside each evening. In the morning, they remove the debris so they can pass through the burrow opening again.

The golden harlequin toad has vanished from the wild, and only a small number live on in captivity. A fungus caused them, and many other amphibians, to die out in their home in Central America. (Photo by Danté Fenolio/The Guardian/Johns Hopkins University Press)
