Update: A reader has informed us that this is probably a “basket star.”
“Basket Stars have 5 arms sprouting from their central disc, same as any Brittle Star. But madness immediately ensues. Each arm branches out over and over and over again until you end up with a kind of mesh, the basket. These are incredibly flexible tendrils, just like the Snake Star’s unbranched arms,” Real Monstrosities explains.
A strange-looking sea creature recently washed up on a beach in southern Vietnam, and no one seems to know what it is.
Du Nam Du, a tour guide in Kien Giang province, scooped up the alien-like creature and placed it on a green plastic table inside a nearby home where residents gathered to get a closer look.
Video footage shows the mysterious sea-dweller wriggling its hundreds of tentacles.
Nam Du said, “I don’t know whether it’s an animal, vegetation or something else.”
Local Kim Tho said, “It’s a monster. One day it will come back out of the ocean. It’ll be ten times bigger,” reports the Daily Mail.
Experts say the creature might be a piece of seaweed reacting to the air. There are dozens of smaller tentacles on each branch, all moving around in different directions.
