Most strangely it had jaws at the end of a long proboscis, suggesting it perhaps ate food hidden deep in the silt of the estuary or within rocky nooks and crannies. Inside its body it had a stiff rod of cartilage, known as a notochord, which helped to give it structure. By bombarding specimens with bursts of radiation the scientists were able to 'excite' elements within - in this state each element releases a signature X-ray allowing them to work out which elements make up the eyes.

The research team also found that the fossil's eyes contained a different type of copper than that of the modern day invertebrates they studied - leaving them unable to classify it as either. Scientists previously believed the the Tully Monster fossils shown above must have been a vertebrate, because of pigments they discovered in its eyes.

This has since been disputed. The Tullimonstrum fossil, a cross section of the animal can be seen. A broader analysis of the chemistry of melanosomes and other pigments in the eyes of a wider range of invertebrates would be a good next step.

A vertebrate is an animal with a back bone or cartilage covered spinal cord. The term stems from the word vertebrae, the bones that make up the spine. Animals that do not have backbones or cartilage covered spinal cords are called invertebrates. Previous research carried out by University of Leicester professor of geology Sarah Gabbott in also studied the Tully's eyes, but came to a different conclusion. Dr Gabbot said: 'Only vertebrates have two different shapes of melanosome, meaning this is the first unequivocal evidence that Tullimonstrum is a member of the same group of animals as us, the vertebrates.

Rogers , Timothy I. Astrop , Samuel M. McNamara, was published by The Royal Society. An illustration depicts what Mazon Creek may have looked like million years ago, complete with Tully monsters the two small swimming creatures , a large shark and a salamander relative.

The new study claims that the identity of the monsters is still up in the air. With a strange tube-shaped body, eyes on stalks and a long trunk like mouth, the Tully Monster artist's impression pictured has baffled scientists for decades. In experts said the Tully Monster was likely a predatory vertebrate related to lamprays. Paleontologists at Yale University showed the creature had a stiffened rod of cartilage that supported its body and gills.
