Take a tour of Dead Sea in Jordan -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. The Dead Sea is really one of the most remarkable spots on earth. With over 1300 feet below sea level, it is the lowest point on the earth's surface. It is also one of the saltiest places, with a composition of 35% salinity. This sometimes creates fascinating and bizarre crystalline formations around the Dead Sea's shoreline. The salinity of the lake is so high that very few plants or animals can survive. About the only things living in the Dead Sea are the human tourists who come here. It's an idyllic place to relax, with white beaches and bright blue water.

New reports suggest the current state of the Dead Sea. The water in the Dead Sea is evaporating and being drained by industries in Israel and Jordan, which both share borders with the inland lake. The water levels have decreased at a record 1 and a half meters over the past year. Water diversion from the Jordan River that flows into the Dead Seas has also led to decreased water levels. There are possible plans to pump water over 110 miles from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, to keep its levels higher, but initial research reports are saying that mixing the water could pose risks. The water would have desalination brine added to it to, and the plan could cost up to 10 billion dollars. The Dead Sea is one of Israel's most popular tourist destinations with 8 hundred fifty seven thousand people visiting last year. Israel Chemicals Limited and Jordan based Arab Potash Company, both fertilizer materials manufacturers, are reportedly responsible for approximately half of the dramatic water level drop.

This strange sea creature is the Glaucus Atlanticus also known as the blue angel, blue dragon and blue sea slug is a marine gastropod mollusk. This tiny animal species is quite the predator. You will find this colorful family member of sea slugs in temperate and tropical waters. Regions include the East and South coast of South Africa, European waters, off the East coast of Australia and Mozambique. Quite tiny, the species normal size is up to 3cm, but it does feed on larger prey like the venomous Portuguese man of war consuming the organism in its entirety. The blue angel is immune to the man of wars venom, collecting it for its own use, using a much more concentrated venom, its sting is more powerful and deadly than the man o war. The poison is stored inside the finger like structures sticking out of its body known as cerata, this is just one of its defense mechanisms. The beautiful blue underside of the blue angel acts as a camouflage from air born predators as it floats upside down on the surface of the water. Its back is grayish in color and faces downward, camouflaging it from predators looking up from below the water. The Blue angel is a hermaphrodite allowing both slugs to produce egg strings after mating which they lay on driftwood, or the skeletons of their victims. There is so much more to learn about this intriguing creature, but we do know that While they are beautiful to behold, they are dangerous to actually hold.
