Feast your eyes on this bad boy.. The unicron of the sea can grow up to a hundred feet long and lives in open water.. Below is some rare footage of this awsome creature..


Divers in Australia have captured rare images of the Pyrostremma spinosum, or pyrosome, sea creature off the coast of Tasmania. It is so rare it has been dubbed the 'Unicorn of the Sea' and can grow up to 30 metres long - the equivalent of two double-decker buses laid end-to-end. Its hollow, translucent, cylindrical body is made up of thousands of tiny clones called zooids that pull water through its tubes and feed on plankton before pushing the filtered water back out

The video is well worth a watch to see the proportions of this lovely creature..

Extremely cool.
Reminds me of the water tentacle in The Abyss.

That thing is not from this planet, that is an alien.

Joking aside, that creature is bizarre in every sense of the word. The ocean is the craziest place to me.

Similarly it reminded me of the watery tube things (?) from Donnie Darko.

Actually, that is not a single creature, but a colony of tiny creatures.

But pretty cool and very rare nonetheless!

Thanks OP

Wow awesome video
Positively alien in appearance.

Makes you wonder how we would have any chance identifying extraterrestrial life, when we have naturally occurring species like this floating around.

We should follow it; I bet it knows about secret places.

And this is why I'm deathly afraid of oceans/lakes. Because of things like THIS hiding under the water. Horrifying.

I know this may seem like a juvenile question....but can a person swim through the center of the tube from the front all the way out the back?
