Earth is a beautiful place. Not that we have any other choice, though. Its diversity of species that are all different and unique in their ways, leave me at awe. The oceans are said to inhabit over 1 million species of plants and animals. But, we humans are leaving no stone unturned to make a few of them endangered.
This rare dolphin will melt your heart, and you will surely wonder how much of beings lie there in the depth of our oceans.
Likewise, Pyrostremma Spinosum has been named the 'Unicorn of the sea' owing to its rare nature. Australian divers have for the first time captured it in photographs. And, you will surely be amazed.
The pyrosome has a translucent body, made up of thousand of tiny clones called zooids.
And, then they give out the filtered water back. They are all just a few millimeters in size and swim freely in open water than near land. That is what makes them hard to spot.
"They're giant, terrifying looking, and trolling through the depths of the ocean, waiting for you to swim in one end and get stuck. Maybe. But fortunately, in addition to being slow moving filter feeders, they're also delicate and fluffy." says Rebecca Helm (Deep Sea News).
Michael Baron, who is from the Eagle Hawk Dive Centre, recorded the giant creature found in Tasman Peninsula, Australia.
