Photos Of The Day: Presented By The Hydrothermal Worm

by | 20th, July 2011

PHOTOS of the Day are presented by the hydrothermal worm – magnified 525 times. (This thing is only 68/1000 of a millimeter long. It’s tiny. Although if you are 20/1000 of a mm long it would look huge and terrifying.)

The hydrothermal worm lives near hydrothermal vents in the ocean. It lives on the back of massive hydrothermal hooks used by hydrothermal giants to catch hydrothermal sharks. Be afraid…
