Ohh, Ahhh, Nwahhh, Really???? Just WTF is this??? Really????
The coral reef at Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, England had been damaged and torn in half. Matt Slater, the Aquarium's curator, told the Daily Mail, "Something was guzzling our reef but we had no idea what, we also found an injured Tang Fish so we laid traps but they got ripped apart in the night."
The traps had hooks, but whatever was in the tank was taking the bait and the hooks. Then a prize tang fish was injured and it was decided that the reef would be dismantled piece by piece until they found the culprit.
What they found seemed to come straight out of a horror or schlock science fiction alien-gone-amok film - a 4-foot long polychaete worm, or giant sea worm. "It really does look like something out of a horror movie," Slater said. "It's over four feet long with these bizarre-looking jaws.
"We also discovered that he is covered with thousands of bristles which are capable of inflicting a sting resulting in permanent numbness."
After discovering the giant sea worm, staff coaxed it out of its hiding place with pieces of fish. However, the giant sea worm bit through 20 lb. fishing line during the process.
Lets make a few things clear, and these things we'll call 'reality' ...
-This is a giant worm that can/will suck your brain out of your eye socket if given the chance
-This worm lives under the sea, or anywhere this is water, which includes your plumbing ... all of our asses are in danger
-This thing can numb your face in an instant
-This thing managed to infiltrate an aquarium, and was destroying the coral, patiently waiting for the chance to melt the glass, and attack some innocent bystander who was there to admire the turtles
-This Giant Sea Worm managed to not be noticed for the better part of its life
-This worm dines on flesh
-This worm can make you go numb before it dines on your flesh
We can reasonably conclude that these things could be anywhere and everywhere, in nearly every aquarium, pipe, lake, or bathtub, just waiting to emerge for the Animal Uprising 2012.
