Enormous Bristle Worm Went Unnoticed Until He Began Emptying His Aquarium

A man could not believe his eyes when a giant bobbit worm akin to a sea monster emerged from behind a rock in his fish tank – after hiding there for two years. The ghastly creature is captured slithering its way between rocks after the man spotted it while he was cleaning the aquarium’s filthy glass.

 

 

It is not clear how the 1.2 meter worm found its way into the tank but it is common for such creatures to hide in the live coral sold to pet owners.

Maroon colored with small spiky tentacles along the side of a long ridged armored body, the worm cuts a striking figure as it glides through the murky water.

It looks more like a creature you would expect to see attacking a crew of intrepid sailors in a science fiction film, than swimming in a fish tank.

Gurutek who posted the video said he had first noticed the worm after his coral began to rapidly disappear.
