In the deep, dark southern ocean surrounding Antarctica, a creature is so confusing and elusive, it has not been played for a year.
See, the “headless chicken monster” that has been filmed immediately swimming near East Antarctica, the first time it has been filmed in the region.
Except that it’s not headless, a chicken or a monster.
Deep Sea resident Enypniastes eximia, also known as “headless chicken monster” to undoubtedly funny scientists, has been filmed in the South Sea.
Researchers gained the unusual species of bath curtain with a new underwater camera system, developed by the Australian Antarctic Department, a part of the Australian Environment and Energy Ministry for the monitoring of commercial long-distance fishing.
This is the first time the light pink creature has been filmed in the southern ocean, as it has only been captured on camera around the Gulf of Mexico according to AAD.
According to a published in Smithsonian Contribution to Marine Science The sea cucumber extends from 6 to 25 cm (2.3 to 9.8 inches) long and “swims almost continuously, short seepage to the seabed to introduce surface sediment . “
If you’re really confused, here’s another look at the creature, filmed by Okeanos Explorer for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) 2017 in the Gulf of Mexico – the last time the cucumber of the ocean was filmed.
Some of these images appear in the new AAD video for context, if some clips look familiar (they are frames that read “file view” in the above video).
The deep sea cameras who fortunately capture this confusing creature capture important data for commercial fishing and marine surveillance, all of which are sent to the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), the International Agency responsible for the management of the South Sea.
They are thrown into the water for fishing gear and can reach depths of up to three kilometers (1.86 miles). So, you would be entitled to assume that they would need to be quite durable.
Two of the underwater cameras were developed to improve the sustainability of long-term fishing in the southern seas.

“We needed something that could be thrown from the side of a boat, and would continue to operate reliably under extreme pressure in tanks for long periods,” said Australia’s Antarctic Division Program Manager Dirk Welsford. A statement.
“Some of the pictures we get back from the cameras are amazing, including species we’ve never seen in this part of the world.”
According to Welsford, other countries like Chile, France and the United Kingdom the Kingdom now uses the durable cameras to map and monitor the effects of commercial fishing in marine environments.
“Most importantly, the cameras provide important information about areas of the seabed that can withstand this kind of fishing and sensitive areas that should be avoided, he said. “It is a very simple and practical solution that directly contributes to improving sustainable fishing.”
The data collected from the cameras will be presented at CCAMLR’s 10-day annual meeting in Hobart, Tasmania commencing October 22nd.
With these data and examples of unique marine life as the sea man in hand, Australia’s CCAMLR Commissioner, Gillian Slocum, said that Australia will seek support for the creation of a new Antarctic marine protection area at the meeting, as well as supporting two other new marina protected areas in the southern seas.
“The South Sea is home to an abundant abundance and marine life, including commercially sought after species whose harvest must be
At least some people have your bright pink back, small sea cucumbers.
