Bizarre Deep-Sea Organism Sporting 20 Tentacles Unearthed in Antarctic Waters

Researchers have discovered a new species of sea creature near Antarctica and named it the Antarctic strawberry feather star. The creature has 20 "arms" and can grow up to eight inches long. Although it doesn't resemble a strawberry at first glance, zooming in on its body reveals a tiny nub that resembles the fruit. The formal name for the species is Promachocrinus fragarius, and it is now one of eight species under the Antarctic feather star category. The discovery was made by scientists from Australia and the US.
