Desolation and isolation are the norm in this benthic realm — what scant light there is comes from the weak bioluminescence of its quiet denizens. The ambient soundscape is a constant slow slosh punctuated by the occasional bubbling of hydrothermal vents.
The subaquatic fauna have even less self-awareness than the Solitary Uintathere whilst dwelling in a much more inhospitable habitat. It will be another hundred million years before they reach even his primitive scope of the world surrounding them.
If you thought the Solitary Uintathere was a lonely beast, torpidly gnawing on weeds in his swamp-home, think of the antecedent arthropods and phytoplankton in the dark depths that have even less perception. Talk about lonely.
Viewer Discretion: Rather than scientifically exploring ancient lifeforms, this motion picture anthropomorphises prehistoric creatures in order to be more accessible to today’s viewing audience.
