Underwater camera captures a mysterious object

Creature could be a jellyfish - but it appears to have organs.

It could be a discarded whale placenta - but it has strange markings

It could be a fishing net - but it seems to move under its own control.
A mysterious ocean 'blob' has been recorded by a deep-sea remote-controlled underwater camera.

The creature looks like nothing seen before, with speculators suggesting it is everything from a jellyfish to the remains of a whale placenta.

While, at a quick glance, the description of a jellyfish makes sense, the creature has organs and appendages never spotted on a jellyfish before.

Meanwhile it could be a whale placenta, but if that is the case then the hexagonal shapes on the skin are a mystery.
