Is the dead sea really dead?

Situated along the coast of Israel, the Dead sea stretches for over 40 miles. At its widest point, the Dead sea is about 11 miles wide. At its deepest point, it is about 1,240 feet deep.

That's pretty deep, especially when you realise that the lowest parts of the Dead sea's shores lie almost 1,400 feet below sea level themselves. That makes the shores of the Dead sea the world's lowest point below sea level!

Although its name implies otherwise, the Dead sea isn't actually a sea at all. It's really a lake. In fact, it's a hypersaline lake, which means it's a landlocked body of water with a high concentration of sodium chloride and other mineral salts.

If you went swimming in the Dead sea you wouldn't see any skeletons or lifeless fish floating on its surface. You also wouldn't see any big, bad sharks or giant squid hunting in its depths. In fact, you wouldn't see any  life at all—plants or animals!
