According to a new fossil study, an ancient sea creature that resembled a tulip had it's BUTT right next to its mouth!! EEK!
When the research was first conducted, it was believed that the animal was part of the species entoprocta, but after Zhifei Zhang of the Northwest University in Xi'an led a group of researchers in Yunnan, China… they found that the animal was part of the Cotyledion tylodes.
Zhang's group inspected 418 species and found that the C. tylodes only existed in one spot, which meant that they dribbled water through their tentacles that were near its mouth and ANUS.

Looks like we're going to have to change our weekly Nature Killing Us All to a daily show!
Tuck in your kids extra tight tonight and tell them that everything is going to be okay as long as they STAY AWAY FROM THE OCEAN!
The reason being??? GIGANTIC SQUID!!!!
Filmed in the depths of the Pacific Ocean blue by Japanese scientists, a giant squid has been caught on tape.
These somewhat mythical creatures are hard to get a glimpse of and we're perfectly fine with that. But the Japan's Natural Science Museum snagged footage of the squid and it was broadcast all over the country!
The researchers teamed up with the Discovery Channel and Japanese station NHK, and both will be airing specials on the find later this month.
Check out this crazy huge squid (above) to see your new worst nightmare!
Some reports claim that jellyfish are experiencing population booms and the ocean will slow be taking over by them.
But studies of longtime records of the animal suggest otherwise…so no jellyfishing just yet!
Researchers have found that
Finding weird animals is always fun and exciting, but when the discoveries that were made in 2012 include fish with penis heads and tulips with digestive systems, then we instantly become a lot more intrigued!!
The most bizarre discoveries of this year are:
Ok….OKAY!!!!! We'll play with you! Geesh!!!!!
