According to experts, in the waters of New Zealand, divers could photograph colonies of marine organisms called pyrosomes.


These creatures can form such pipes, like a single body. It is noteworthy that it is almost impossible to meet pyros, only a few cases of contact with them are known. Pyrosomes feed on plankton, which is filtered by special organs.

These creatures are distinguished by their thermophilicity; therefore, they live exclusively in tropical waters. In addition, a mandatory condition of existence is the salinity of water at the level of 35%.
