Hello all,

Just been having a surf on the net and found this:

A group of glowing worms has been found dwelling in the deep ocean, some of which release body parts as tiny "bombs" to ward off predators.


The creatures, which the scientists say could be widespread in the deep sea, indicate the extent of biodiversity yet to be discovered in the oceans.

Makes you wonder what else is lurking at the depths of the worlds oceans!

Stuff like this just makes me wonder how some people still think this world is just all about us.
You just gotta say wow!
There is just so much more to it, than us.
Nice find.

Those look very ancient!

There is probably so many species in the deep blue.

LOL, you know what those remind me of? The now debunked "Rods"....

Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

First thing I must say about these is they are so beautiful! If they are indeed real, they're so cute

The oceans facinate me, really, all this questing for life on other worlds and we only know a fraction about whats in the oceans. The oceans are an alien world on their own.

They're actually almost pretty! I love it when new species are found! Just goes to show that we don't know it all and there's so much more left to discover! Thanks OP!

Pretty cool, if they glow and blow stuff up with their own body parts haha! Sounds like an epic creature
