The fossil of a bizarre 500 million year-old creature has been pieced together by scientists, more than 50 years after it was discovered.
A video has emerged of “large alien looking jellyfish” washing up on a beach in Dorset, UK. In the footage, captured on Highcliffe beach earlier this month, the filmer uses her foot to compare the size of the jellies. According to news reports, there have been several sightings of barrel jellyfish “the size of dustbin lids” off the south coast of England this month.
This strange footage was shot in Taiwan recently, by uploader Wei Cheng Jian. He encountered this rarely-seen creature while fishing in a port in Penghu, and shared the clip to his <a href="https://www.facebook.com/chien.w.cheng/videos/939400179415040/" target="_blank">Facebook page</a> soon afterwards. The green mass seems like to be some kind of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemertea" target="_blank">ribbon worm,</a> but poor Wei Cheng Jian remains unsure, and more than a little nervous!

A fish that can live out of water for up to six days poses a threat to Australian native species, according to James Cook University scientist <a href="https://research.jcu.edu.au/tropwater/news-and-events/australian-crawl-invasive-walking-fish-threat-from-png-1" target="_blank">Dr. Nathan Waltham</a>. The climbing perch uses its gill plates to drag itself from waterhole to waterhole, and has already reached the Torres Strait islands of Boigu and Saibai (both Australian territories), around five kilometers south of Papua New Guinea, where it originates.The “extremely hardy” fish can survive in the mud of dried-up creek beds for up to six months. The fish is “very invasive, outcompeting native species once it is established in a new environment,” said researchers in a statement. In order to protect native Australian marine and land fauna, Dr. Waltham emphasized the need for active monitoring and education by relevant authorites and local communities to ensure the species does not reach Australia.
