    In order to solve the mystery of the mysterious holes, scientists turned to Internet users for help.

    In a recent study, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have begun to study the deep-sea habitats of corals and sponges in the Atlantic Ocean, writes Express.

    While diving, they explored the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the Azores plateau when they found something that amazed everyone very much. So they stumbled upon a very strange set of holes with small heaps of sediment around.

    According to experts, these holes were dug, but their origin is still a mystery. To try and solve the mystery, the researchers shared photos on social media to get clues from the public.

    “Although they look almost man-made, the little piles of sediment around the holes give the impression that they were dug. However, these are just guesses,” the experts noted.

    Internet users have put forward a variety of theories.

    “I wonder if any companies take samples of the seabed? This can explain straight lines and spacing between holes,” wrote one user.

    Another user suggested that a crab dug the hole. The third commenter shared a meme that says: I'm not saying they were aliens, but they were aliens.

    Another user offered a less uncanny explanation: “It seems to me that the sediment is sinking, or water is flowing from a crack in a geological shelf or cave roof. I suspect that either the ancient coral or some sedimentary rock structure beneath it has a void from which material is washed out even further. I would start to see if there are any caves or deformations on the seabed.”

    The Mid-Atlantic Ridge spans the Atlantic Ocean from north to south and extends for 16,000 km, making it the longest mountain range in the world and one of the most impressive geological features on Earth. Because most of it is underwater, it remains largely unexplored. It is also a site of frequent earthquakes and home to hydrothermal vents.

    “We will continue to explore deep sea habitats for corals and sponges, as well as potential hydrothermal vents, fault and rift zones, and the water column. We very much hope that it is in the course of these studies that we will be able to find out the secret of the discovered holes,” the scientists concluded.
