Challenger Reports

The voyage of the HMS Challenger from 1873 to 1876 was the first of its kind: a scientific expedition to understand the ocean environment and the deep-sea.

Among other things, a legacy of this expedition is the amazing drawings of sea creatures that are available for any and all to see! Click here for an index to all the discoveries (scroll down until you get to "Links To The Zoological Reports").

Here are some of my favorites, but you should peruse the plates of all the different reports; they found some amazing animals!

They really inspire me to work on my drawing skills!
