A yet unidentified exotic jellyfish collected from the Celebes Seaoff Tawi-Tawi (one of the world's deepest ocean basins), the south-east Asian nation's southernmost archipelago at 2,800 meters (9,186ft) deep. Dr Larry Madin, of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, who led the Inner Space Speciation Project, believe that the bizarre creature could be a new marine life.
