The black and white photos of what looks like grass is actually a filamentous sulfur-oxidizing bacteria. The filaments can be up to a couple of centimeters long, and form white "fur" on the rocks and plants surrounding the hydrothermal vents. Researchers at UC Davis determined that this bacteria has been found only at White Point!
We found little worms hiding in the strands of bacteria, along with diatoms and what appears to be a crustacean larvae.
