Unusual creature from the deep sea has baffled researchers – video

In principle, we have probably all become accustomed to the sight of unusual creatures inhabiting the deep sea. Their unusual shapes, unusual structure and fanciful colouring is something that is not able to make us dumbfounded.

A very unusual creature was encountered by ROV operators as part of research conducted by Nautilus Live. On their way through the oceanic nooks and crannies, they encountered an incredibly rare sight that even the most experienced members of the expedition were perplexed by… their lack of knowledge about!

Here in front of the Nautilus cameras appeared an unusual purple-coloured creature called a tubeworm.

During the recording, comments such as this can be heard:

Wow, that’s amazing! I can’t believe it actually exists!”

Although it may appear that we are dealing with a single creature, in fact, it is a whole colony of tubeworms, consisting in fact of thousands of interconnected organisms, called zooids.
