    Maybe they're bomb craters from maneuvers.

    I agree. The intricate nests some birds can build with nothing but their beaks and little feet knock me out, too.

    Now if we could just get to the bottom of those crop circles, we'd all be able to rest easier in our beds.....

    The fact that the tracks are two miles deep is not that interesting, the number of them is. That tells me that there is a large population of whatever it is that creates those depressions, and that is a good thing. Means there's plenty of bio mass at depth.

    It seems a little strange that they seem to be arranged in single file lines like that, doesn't it? Just not the way you think of critters settling down to build a hole, or whatever.

    Not really. A critter takes up an orientation, and at depth they merely keep going in the direction they are facing. At that depth there is no light, so you are blind.

    No, there are far more unexplainable things in our oceans that concern me more.
