    Yes, water exists underground in the form of lakes as well. The interesting thing about these environments is that they are often sealed off from the larger world, so the ecosystems that develop are usually totally unique. Scientists are constantly discovering new species of animals through recently discovered cave habitats. A limestone cavern found in Israel’s Yarkon-Taninim aquifer, for example, produced 4 unique species of aqueous crustaceans and 4 terrestrial invertebrates that scientists believe are millions of years old.
