During ongoing deep-sea investigations in the Pacific Ocean, a remotely operated vehicle run by scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) spied a "whopping big" sea anemone whose tentacle features had never before been seen by any of the researchers watching.
Fans of these 'flowers of the sea' might enjoy the video footage below, captured by the remote sub.
About 1 foot (30 centimeters) across, the sea anemone was found off a sea mountain near Wake Island, a coral atoll in the western Pacific Ocean.

The beautiful video below records the scientists getting a closer look. They take note of the rounded tips of the giant's tentacles as well as a brown dot at the center of each of the structures.
"It's kind of stumping us all here," a researcher observes, while the vehicles crosses near the animal.
