New Delhi: It is a great sensation when in the midst of new animal species are threatened or extinct, we can hear about a new discovery.
Not every day when there is something difficult to find in the subject. However, they were social media platforms in a bunch of nerves because of their appearance.
The creature is a peanut worm, which was discovered by a team of scientists Victoria Museums in Australia on its recent expedition for a month in oceanic abyss off the Australian coast.
Although the team has found a variety of underwater organisms – including a faceless fish, a sea pig, a zombie worm and meat of crustaceans – peanut worm caught the eye.
Why? The organization has a strange resemblance to the male reproductive organ. IBTimes UK, who first reported the curious sea creature, shared a peanut worm boarding photo, quickly catching the public’s attention. See the image below:
According to the report, the name “peanut worm” came from the fact that, when threatened, these marine animals contract their long heads inward in a form like a peanut kernel.
Worms cacao or sipunculid worms are actually a group of anantistic worm bilateral symmetry consisting of 144-320 different species.
They can reproduce sexually and asexually. Cacaillis worms live in shallow water and are generally found in abandoned reservoirs and burrows.
The team of researchers who went on the expedition entered the limelight after releasing a photo of a fish without a face, one of the most special creatures they found in the abyss. It was also a particularly rare find.
“Australia’s offshore marine environment is larger than the mainland, and so far, it knows almost nothing about life on the abyssal plain,” said Dr. Tim O’Hara, senior scientist for the expedition and chief conservator of Victoria marine invertebrates. .
“We are very excited about the discoveries we have made and are delighted that we can share them with the Australian and international audiences,” said the Inquisitr.
Because most of the creatures that are encountered during the expedition are extremely rare, they are sent to different laboratories in Australia to be considered, while some will be displayed in an exhibition at the Melbourne Museum soon.
