This animal or animals as it is more than one, is super awesome and beautiful.

I will leave the article and video to explain about it, enjoy.

The finders and recording of this animal is found in the link below, it's a site that is very nice if you wanna relax with some beautiful underwater exploration being live or recorded, many hours of video meditation and info.
NAUTILUS LIVE

Sourc e of article


A group of marine biologists were in for an unexpected surprise when a deep sea expedition led to a close encounter with one of the ocean depth’s rarest creatures.

When exploring the ocean bed in the Gulf of Mexico, scientists from the Nautilus Live team came across an extremely rare purple species of siphonophore.



Although the creature may look on the surface like an elongated jellyfish, each species is in fact not just one organism but a colony of individual organisms that are connected together.


Still kind of hard to find the right forum for animals

Wonders never cease. The first thing that flashed through my mind was the resemblance of that part on the left to a zipper. I've been watching the dives too. I just wish they would project their voices so the viewing experience would be more enjoyable. So thanks for identifying what it was for me.

It WAS a rare creature...

Now dead on an autopsy table awaiting his/her mate... Sadly

Might have been captured dead in a net accidently... Whatever... Best to leave them alone IMO, we have done enough damage to our planet as it is...

Kindest respects

I've seen those before ( on screen)

If I remember correctly they are many animals together, working as a team.

Some digest, some catch... but as a whole they make this "one" animal.

Imagine being born as the rear end... that would be a #ty life ; )

Scientists have difficulties to place them in a group. Colony? Cell ?

Anyway that's all i Remember.

Cool

Edit: I see it's in the description as well... oops.

SYNTHIA-Corexit-OIL mix exposed in early stages comes to mind. Interesting creature non the less

I have switched out the video in OP with a longer, more detailed and 1080p resolution.

It's ok, they didn't capture it...




This beautiful colonial organism drifted past Hercules' cameras, and we followed it for as long as we could keep track.

LMAO !

I asked them during live exploration the same thing, "how do those creatures taste?"

Probably not very good according to them.

With crazy stuff like that on our own world, I can't even imagine what other planets come up with.

Thanks for bringing this too the table. I really enjoyed watching it and I am also enjoying the site, so major bonus there. The dumbo octopus they have a video is pretty incredible as well. SnF

Nope, I am not interested in eating that.
I don't eat rare things that don't look appetizing to me.

Its pretty cool how its made of a bunch of different creatures, its basically a living breathing moving colony, or a biological micro city with specialized parts in the whole, each doing there own thing, and some can detach from the whole and operate on there own for specific purposes. If these things were more evolved, and more complex, or even if they were just bigger, they really would be something and a sight to see.
