This 4-foot-long sea worm was devastating coral reef and terrorizing fish at an aquarium in Cornwall, southwestern England. The creature, known as “Barry,” devoured bait traps — hooks and all — and bit through a 20-pound fishing line before staffers finally managed to capture it. The worm was moved to its own tank.

Eunice aphroditois = Bob It Worm

LOL - No wonder why every person I've ever met named Eunice made my skin crawl.

That thing is just nasty!
I wonder if it has any redeeming qualities whatsoever?

Thanks for the gross-out of the day!

Did anyone else flash on the two-headed monster from "Willow"?


Ugly little sucker, just right for a major Hollywood role.

I predict this worm will make its debut on Food Network during the Iron Chef program and it tastes like shrimp.

Just imagine being eye to eye with this little beast when your boat capsizes. Creepy.

20lb fishing line isn't that much, I use 60b for deep-sea cod fishing. Although, a worm breaking it is slightly terrifying.

If there is one I wonder if their is probably more out there somewhere just randomly lying about on the floor. Also I find it interesting that as of late, their are starting to emerge a lot of creatures that are at least twice or thrice as big as they are supposed to be. Makes me wonder what is either A. Making them so big or B. How they have been evading our detection for so long.

[Edit]

Well never mind seems that more were found before according to the link the poster above has provided, yet still their are quite a few that emerging each with their own variations. I wonder if something is happening in the world that is changing the structure of some of the creatures...

Personally...

I think it's lovely.

Yeah, its a little creepy, but i wonder how it evaded detection in the tank for so long? Granted it could have got in when it was small, but not noticing a 2-3-4 foot critter like that? Lazy aquarium workers...

The fact that it managed to go from not even being recognised as being in the tank to 4 ft long before anyone noticed it is terrifying!

That's kind of terrifying.

Wow, it's amazing the kind of things they keep finding in our very own backyard eh?

I keep saying they should explore every inch of the ocean, i am sure there are plenty of other "monsters" lurking in the deep.

It does make one wonder about other "monsters" lurking in the deep...

Here in North Carolina they have sand worms on the beach almost like that. My aunt showed me one they live under the sand. I cant imagine laying out there in a bikini. Nope not me.They cant pay me enough money to go to the beach.

That made me cringe so much!!!

I couldn't imagine one of those crawling near, or on me when I was sunbathing!!!

You have sand worms on the beach and what they call blood worms. Both live under the sand. and both are nasty looking critters. That is why I dont go swimming at any NC beach. Then at the NC lakes you have nasty snakes that are poisinous. So you surely dont want to swim there either. Personally I prefer the backyard pool any day that way I can see the bottm and can check it out before diving in.
