Scientists of the expedition Five Deeps apparently have discovered a new species of animals
Being found on the ocean floor during the expedition, Five Deeps
Scientists during an expedition in the Indian ocean came across the most unusual and eerie creature that has not previously met the biologists. Externally the animal resembles “a balloon on a string,” but it is not nearly as nice as it might seem at first glance, reports Live Sciense.
Deep the body was discovered by the expedition of Five Deeps, the aim of which is to visit the deepest places of all the world’s oceans. The creature discovered in the deepest part of the Indian ocean – Sunda trench whose depth reaches 8 km.
With the help of his long tail this creature is attached to the bottom
“We watched our video and see how this thing emerged from the darkness. He drifted directly into the camera, and then sailed away again” — describes his meeting with the strange creation of Alan Jamieson, head of the expedition Five Deeps.
Scientist shoveled a bunch of research and literature to understand who he still saw. At some point he suggested that he saw obolonya, or ascidia — sea invertebrate. Ascidians in larval stage swim freely in the water column, and the adults attach themselves to the rocks.
However, Jamieson argues that the number of differences does not allow us to identify the strange creature as ascidia. According to the scientist, the likelihood is high that we managed to discover a new species. Jamieson suggests that with the help of his long tail this creature is attached to the bottom during seismic activity in the depths of the ocean.
