In the deep, dark Southern Ocean encircling Antarctica lies a creature so bewildering and elusive, it hasn't been filmed for a year.

Behold, the 'headless chicken monster,' which has been filmed casually swimming near East Antarctica, the first time it's been filmed in the region.

Except that it's not headless, a chicken, or a monster. It's a sea cucumber.

Deep-sea resident Enypniastes eximia, also known as the 'headless chicken monster' to undeniably hilarious scientists, has been filmed in the Southern Ocean.
