An unknown creature would be one that exists but has never been discovered until this point in time. In April 2020, scientists discovered a 150-ft deep-sea predator called a siphonophore, which was off Australia's coast. This deep-sea predator comprises many small clones with one mind and is linked together like a single long string.

The Siphonophore eats small crustaceans and fish by paralyzing them with its tentacles and then scooping them up on which to feed. This creature is twice as long as many blue whales and three times as long as a humpback whale. They also located a long-tailed sea cucumber and the first giant hydroids, which are jellyfish.

The correct answer to this question is siphonophore. This discovery was recently made and the animal was found on the Australian cost. The Schmidt Ocean Institute made this discovery by using underwater robots.

It has a length of 150 feet and it is thought to be the longest creature to ever be recorded on earth. siphonophores are made of tiny zooids, which are also known as cell clusters. These clusters are able to clone themselves up to thousands of times. Once they are cloned, they connect together in a strong and act as one creature that is large and floats.
