Don’t mess with the bobbit worm

by David Proudfoot

Bobbit Worm – Dinner time from liquidguru on Vimeo.

Bobbit Worms are a very strange nocturnal predatory worm. They have most of their bodies buried in the sand, with just their frightening looking pincers showing.

I was patiently filming a couple that were close together and my waiting paid off…

The first Bobbit Worm attacks and eats a foolish Scorpionfish that wandered in too close…

The second went for a Long Arm Octopus that got too close….I was quite upset, as I Love octopuses, but luckily the plucky little octopus was too tough for the bobbit Worm and escaped after a few seconds..
