Burn Everything: Man Reveals Giant Predatory Marine Worm While Cleaning Saltwater Aquarium

March 1, 2016


This is a video of Youtuber gurutek cleaning his saltwater aquarium to reveal the giant predatory Eunice worm that had been living in the sediment. Apparently the 1.2-meter worm had been living in the tank unbeknownst to him for a year before he first spotted the thing, and only saw the thing three times in the span of the next year when it would come out at night to feed on his coral colonies. Personally, I would have stabbed that thing with a trident and flushed it down the toilet like a normal person. "Amen to that!" Okay, well technically you're not a normal person, Aquaman, but I do appreciate your support. Hook me up with your mermaid friend?

Keep going for the video, which you should probably not watch if you get the heebie-jeebies easily.

Thanks to Frankie, who agrees finding worms somewhere you don't expect them, in general, is bad news.

    I'm going to have to take a break from geekologie until this picture gets archived. At least I have a new nightmare out of the deal.

    Ah, you never learn.

  • Better than finding HALF a worm... (Yeah, I so freakin' said that.)

  • Jenness

    That's one pretty filthy tank - no wonder they couldn't find it or really see it before, but they should have noticed the coral turning brown and dying off for a long time.

    Those things will swim into your butthole/urethra if you're not paying attention. Then gooooooooooooooooooooood luck getting them out.

  • The_Wretched

    You have a rather impressive urethra if you think that thing has a chance in hell of getting in.

  • Bling Nye

    They really wriggle in there. There's tearing.

  • Joel Lamm

    ahhh, where is the video?

  • Gilbert

    If you click on the Awesomer link, it's right on their page... I guess it was too much work for someone else?

  • Joel Lamm

    Oh, my bad! I'm an idiot and didn't even see that.
