Good picture, though!

Almost looks like the fireworm with the white hairy stuff. Those pack a nasty punch I've heard if touched. I guess it's just the close-up that I've never seen my bristleworms with the hair. The fireworms are full of the hair. No mistaking those.

Yes, that is a bit impressive - but nothing on a 3 metre bobbit worm (Bobbit worm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia; Stock Photo of a Bobbit Worm - Acclaim Stock Photography).

This has nothing to do with a bobbit worm.
