There are some pretty crazy-looking animals out there. The best place to find them is either in my dating history or at the bottom of the sea (don't worry, there's no crossover). This particular animal came from the bottom of the sea and may just be the strangest creature alive. In what looks like some kind of weird experiment gone wrong, it was initially discovered by a team of BP engineers more than 4,300 foot below the surface of the ocean.
A group of researchers have decided to call it the 'Flying Spaghetti Monster' - after a creature which features in a mockery of religion called pastafarianism. A parody of Michelangelo's 'The Creation of Adam' features the Flying Spaghetti Monster in which he replaces God.
Daniel Jones from the National Oceanography Centre has since captured images of the Flying Spaghetti Monster who, yet again, is having a bad hair/tentacle day. It's fairly difficult to work out what this thing might be, but from the way it moves it certainly seems to be alive.
Seeing at it lives directly below an oil rig, I'm guessing that some form of oil spill has had something to do with this ridiculous-looking creature. Perhaps its parents were squid who ingested too much oil? But this is mere conjecture. You can form your own conclusions once you've seen the Flying Spaghetti Monster in action.
While this guy certainly won't be appearing on the 'old MacDonald' song any time song, he's not the only strange and unusual creature which we've been blessed with. Check out these rare animals which God must have made while drunk.
