A group of divers were lucky enough to encounter the worlds oldest sea creature.
The Ctenophores, commonly known as comb jellies, are an invertebrate animal that lives in marine waters and are notable for the groups of cilia they use for swimming.
Jorge Moreno Mendoza, 20, from the Canary Islands, was diving with a group, at the marine reserve of El Hierro (Canary Islands), near La Restinga, in February, when they captured the footage of creature shrinks in size from fear.
Jorge, studying a degree in Biology, said: “You can see how the divemaster points at the strange creature, so I approached to record it up close.
