Cenotes are freshwater wells created naturally by soil erosion and groundwater seepage.
The word cenote comes from the word dzonot in the language of the Mayas. Cenotes are found in Yucatan, Florida and Cuba.
This is a cenote on the island of Cuba. It’s connected to the sea by a series of caves. At first the water was half fresh and half salty but as time passed it got less and less salty and the creatures that inhabit it had to adapt.
Inside the cenotes live very characteristic animals. The blindfish or Cubanichthys is one of them. They are colorless fish since they have not developed pigments in the dark. They also do not have eyes and the way they detect their prey is by the signals they emit.
