The surprises on our planet never end, although recently it was discovered what could be a new species of human being who lived in the Philippines millions of years ago, now it seems that it is the turn of a new discovery from the depths of the sea.
Members of Five Deeps Expedition discovered a new creature in the depths of the Indian Ocean, all during an exploration they did exactly in the Java pit. According to experts, they had never seen an animal of this type, so their name is unknown up to now.
The new creature was captured by the underwater cameras that the members of Five Deeps Expedition had in the depths; the curious creature passed in front of them.
It should be noted that a principle was thought to be a balloon, because of its round appearance and because it is white, but of course, it is not common to see a balloon deep in the sea.
Experts try to decipher the creature
Alan Jamieson, who is the chief scientist of the expedition, says that they came to what they ‘believe’ is the deepest of the Indian Ocean. Alan described the mysterious creature as an ‘extraordinary gelatinous animal that does not look like anything seen before’, in fact they have few ideas about the creature:
“It really does not have a common name, because we’re not quite sure what it is. But it seems that it is a Tunicate that would normally be anchored to the seabed using that great long tentacle, and for some reason it raises its body on the seabed so that it can filter food out of the water. “
Jamieson also points out that he found in Japan a similar description of a species designated as ‘sea spray’. According to the researcher, this creature presents some differences to that found by his team as ‘filaments on the top of his head’, so they rule out that this animal is of this class.
Because the origin of the creature is not very clear, the researchers do not rule out that it is a new animal species that lives in the depths of the Indian Ocean. However, the inquiries will continue, because it has an appearance never before seen.
The next step for this group is to investigate the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean, the deepest part of any of the oceans.

In addition, their dives are being filmed for a series of Discovery Channel documentaries, which will be broadcasted at the end of the year.
No doubt the creature is unique, you do not see something like that every day.
Have you seen something like that before?
