A stunning yet strange looking jellyfish was encountered by a deep sea probe in the world’s deepest ocean trench.
The creature resembled something from another world; a dark watery world with a lot of atmospheric pressure, never frequented by man.
While probing the ocean depths in the vicinity of the Mariana Trench with a remotely piloted craft, researchers working aboard the Okeanos Explorer ship belonging to the US NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) have encountered a bizarre-looking specimen of a jellyfish.

The creature, identified by marine biologists as a hydromedusa, belonging to the genus Crossota, was spotted at the depth of approximately 2.3 miles near the Enigma Seamount, a ridge located to the west of the Mariana Trench.
