This 10 Foot Long Creature Was Discovered Off The Australian Coast

A strange creature was seen and photographed in Port Douglas, Australia. Nicknamed ‘the unicorn of the seas,’ this creature can measure up to ten feet long and looks like a huge tube of jelly. Rare with little known about it, it was recently photographed by a diver.

Jay Wink is an Australian diver who encountered a pyrosome, a strange creature also known as ‘the unicorn of the seas’ because of its mysterious nature.

The pyrosome was seen by the diver in Port Douglas, Australia, waters where many unusual phenomena occur. Nowadays it seems new species are still often discovered!

It is actually a cluster of thousands of living organisms that can take the form of a tube, which looks incredible when seen underwater.

These thousands of organisms are called zoids. They give off a special light underwater, and look like a huge tube made of jelly when they form the pyrosome. Pyrosomes are Thaliaceae, ‘often transparent barrel-shaped organisms.’
