It's A Real Life Sea Monster!

scary and real

Holy shiz! That's a scurry worm!

No, this isn't something Tim Burton sketched for the reboot of Beatle Juice.

This is not photoshop, no clever graphics, no movie scene… it's a hydrothermal worm.

It's a real photo taken of a real creature.

It's just really, really small. So small in fact, that this image comes from an electron microscope.

The worm, as scary as it looks, is something most people will never actually get to see (or have to worry about, for that matter). Hydrothermal worms are deep sea creatures, almost as small as bacterium, and are largely found near hydrothermal vents in the ocean.

Good Fugg'n thing!

BTW - If that thing grows legs we're all dead.
