Worms (Platyhelminthes-Nemertina-Annelida) - My Hawaiian Images

I know many divers that have passed these amazing creatures by on every single dive and don't even know it...the gills/feeding fans of a Christmas tree worm (Spirobranchus giganteus). The rest of the worm extends deep into it's coral home, and those beautiful spiral fans can retract in an eyeblink.
