I'm sorry Tony. I see that you were comparing it to the bobbit worm now. Thought you were calling it one.

Maybe I should read a little better.

Excellent photos!

Ray, don't think for one second that a bristle worm doesn't pack a punch too. I speak from experience. Nasty little buggers.

Good choice to use the tongs when handling that guy!

Robert, you have to be incredibly fast to have caught him !!!! I have seen them slither across my tank really fast...for EIGHT years...YUK...sure hope none are as bit as that Daddy...I have caught a few in traps also, but if they are THAT big they won't fit...GADs...I don't even want to put my hand down in the tank now.

What are you going to do with it????

mudfrog: they hitchhike on live rock they can be dangerous to corals

copepod: i lifted the rock up exposing it to light so i think i put it into shock then i put it in vinegar and tossed it in the flowerbed
