Now this is why we love the internet, because there are so many other things it could be called.

From a Mermaid's Toy, to Dildofilphora - the internet had a field-day.

It’s actual name comes from the fact that when threatened these animals can contract their long head inwards and resemble a peanut.

As it stands though, it definitely resembles something else!

Men beware, this could lead to some awkward new nicknames for your member.

On a serious note, it was just one of a host of odd animals a team from the Museums Victoria discovered during a month-long expedition of one of the most inaccessible and mysterious environments on the planet – 4,000 metres below the sea known as the eastern abyss.

That’s one way to get the world interested in science!
