This bridge is in a rainforest where it rains a lot! Usually, the bridge goes over a river. But in February 2018, it rained so much that the river flooded. Eventually, the bridge was ten feet underwater!

This scuba diver just tossed a big rectangular thing in the water. It’s something the diver will use while underwater. What do you think it is? Take a guess.

Scuba divers and fish also love the Underwater Museum. Artists put sculptures on the ocean floor. They’re becoming a spooky underwater garden, overgrown with seaweed and coral.
