Video: Diving with a giant pyrosome

An interesting new underwater video is making the rounds on social media. The video shows divers off Ticao Island in the Philippines encountering one of the ocean’s most unusual looking creatures - or group of creatures - a pyrosome.

Pyrosoma atlanticum may look like an alien straight out of the movie “The Abyss”. However, it is in fact a colony of tiny tunicates attached to one another, moving together as one.
