Villa Luz, Mexico

The hazardous conditions here posed a problem for the equipment as well as the crew. Sulphuric acid eats through plastic so the high-definition camera had to be protected in an underwater housing. The odds seem heavily stacked against there being any wildlife to film here. Yet there are perfectly adapted fish and extremophiles that actually depend on their toxic surroundings.
