Xenophyophores, single celled animal have discovered recently in the western Pacific Ocean. It was found in the long depth of ocean and it has been previously noticed in the New Hebrides Trench, south-west Pacific Ocean, at a 7500 km depth.

In western Pacific Ocean it was observed in the depth of 10,600 km below the earth’s surface. These deep sea animals are often ranges in size from 10cm in diameter. These animals contain variety of species vary widely in their appearance, ranging from compressed disks to spheres, and from angular to frilly.
