If you will look at this still image, you might say that it's a super sized or giant underwater glow worm swimming freely with the scuba divers in the Philippines. But the thing is it's more than that. According to NewsBeat Social website, what appears to be amazing glow worm creature is actually hundreds of underwater animals.
According to their website, it's called pyrosome.
"Scuba divers diving off the coast of the Philippines' Ticao Island bumped into an amazing creature collection called a pyrosome."Pyrosome, according to WIKIPEDIA:
Pyrosomes are free-floating colonial tunicates that live usually in the upper layers of the open ocean in warm seas, although some may be found at greater depths. Pyrosomes are cylindrical- or conical-shaped colonies made up of hundreds to thousands of individuals, known as zooids. Colonies range in size from less than one centimeter to several metres in length.
