Scientists have discovered a “silly string-like creature” in the Indian Ocean.

The Schmidt Ocean Institute‘s expedition has found a giant siphonophore, which is closely related to a jellyfish.

This creature could be the largest ever recorded since it has an outer “ring” that measures 154 feet.

Scientists say the animal is made up of millions of interconnected clones, and they all have different jobs in the colony.
