Divers Encounter Strange Deep-Sea Worm Over 8 Meters Long

These two divers found themselves dwarfed by a deep-sea worm measuring more than eight meters long and made up of hundreds of thousands of organisms.

Longtime friends Steve Hathaway, 56, and Andrew Buttle, 48, were diving off the coast of Whakaari, the stratovolcano on White Island, New Zealand, on October 25, when they discovered the gelatinous worm.

Initially diving to record footage for the island that Andrew inherited from his grandfather, their focus was stolen by the hollow, wind-sock-like creature.

The worm can be seen moving delicately through the water, occasionally shuddering and pulsating whilst the divers swim gently around it so not to disturb it.
