Tucked away on one of the 250 small islands that make up the nation of Palau in the western Pacific Ocean, there exists a lake that's quite unlike any other, one containing millions of squishy little creatures found nowhere else on the planet.

One only needs to venture beneath the surface to know how Jellyfish Lake got its name.

Amatuer adventurer John Hawkins recently paid a visit to Jellyfish Lake and, donning snorkeling gear, captured some breathtaking footage of himself swimming amongst a crowd of its namesake inhabitants.

The lake is believed to have been formed 12,000 years ago, isolating the jellyfish from the ocean. Since then, they've become a distinct species, thriving in a world that's all their own.
