Earth has gone through various changes throughout its life since the creation of the planet. Here are some of the mysterious deep holes on the earth. Most of these mysterious deep holes were created naturally.

1. Dean’s Blue Hole on Long Island in the Bahamas, 660 feet deep
A “blue hole” is a large hole whose entrance is below sea level. This one in particular is the deepest saltwater blue hole in the world. It’s almost twice the depth of most others.
2. Glory Hole – Monticello Dam, California
This man-made dam with a fairly provocative name can drain approximately 48,000 cubic feet of water per second
3. Great Blue Hole, Belize
This hole was made famous by Jacques Cousteau, who said it was one of the top scuba diving sites in the world. You can take a tour and dive in, if you’re not scared of giant, Pacific Rim monster-aliens from another dimension portaling through.
4. Mount Baldy Sand Dune, Indiana – 11 feet deep
These weird, Sarlacc-pit-looking sink holes are starting to appear around the Mount Baldy Sand Dune near Lake Michigan. One sink hole even swallowed a child in 2011. Luckily, after three hours, he was dug out of the pit.
In 2010, the mysterious sinkhole blew through Guatemala City’s Zona 2, swallowing a three-story building whole.
6. Antarctica – 2 miles deep
This was the hole that mysteriously appeared in Russia. It measured up to 300 ft deep and was believed to have formed due to rising temperatures. The darkening of the rim is evidence of heat during a possible explosion during the enormous crater’s creation.
