Fun Facts


There's a "floating rainforest" in the sea.

When most people think of rainforests, they picture massive jungles filled with trees and critters. However, somewhere in the Sargasso Sea sits the so-called "floating rainforest" that consists not dense vegetation on land, but of seaweed under water.

According to Smithsonian, each strand of brown Sargassum marine algae can grow to be the length of a school bus. When they become matted together in the water, the masses—or "forests"—of algae can be as large as several football fields. The seaweed is not only impressively long and large, but also provides the perfect place for a diverse collection of animals to live—not unlike an actual rainforest!
