Seaworms!


13 favorite seaworms-- this is more cracked than Cracked!

A number of the creatures should be of extreme interest to science fiction, fantasy, and horror writers.

One of the seaworms lives under the edge of the shells of limpets-- normally a limpet is extremely vulnerable to starfish, but the seaworm feeds on the tender suckers of attacking starfish. Doesn't this want to show up in milsf somehow?

There's a seaworm which is an inverse hydra-- up to thousands of bodies hanging off one head.

And another which specializes in eating the bones of dead whales.

From the body forms I take it most of these are polychaete annelids? They seem to have segments and to have bristles in rows down the sides. . . .
