Animal locomotion trail?

I am obviously not Steve but I'm curious, so here goes:

"Animal locomotion trail?" My first thought was that if it were on a sandy shoreline it could be clams. Not likely though, a mile and a half down!

At more than a half-inch by almost 2 1/3 inch, the holes are fairly substantial. Wonder if they ascertained how deep they are? They said that those that appeared more recently created were surrounded by loose sediment, while the older ones were more clear. Sediment implies something dug from below maybe? That doesn't explain why the holes would be in a straight or "gently curved line", though.

My final guess is that they are formed by escaping gases in the ocean bed. ??

We can only guess but egg laying traces seems plausible. A botanist might have a different hypothesis is all the title suggests.

The holes are 1.6 miles underwater, so human agency seems unlikely. I bet they were made by a critter who understood that the shortest distance between two clams is a straight line. I also bet that the squareness will turn out to be caused by the computerized camera that took the photo.

Ocean floor mining will remove top sediments along with any life for metals like manganese, cobalt that go into making car batteries.
Talks about sea floor mining rules took place in Jamaica this week.
The tech is still emerging and the eastern Pacific is the target site for mining.

Car companies are asking for a ten year delay to be sure of enviormental safety. or so they say. Its the unknown that can't be predicted.

I believe it's a perforated line we're supposed to tear along .....

Looks rather like what you would get if you rolled a gear wheel of the right size along the seabed.

Can they tell if they were formed by something bubbling up or something burrowing down?

Ocean prospecting, especially with robots is pretty secretive. Just saying.

If it looks man-made, and squawks like it is man-made ...................

Just saying
