MetadataShow full item record
An enormous black worm that lives in the mud on the sea floor and survives on the remnants of noxious gases digested by bacteria has been unveiled by scientists for the first time. The slimy giant shipworm can grow up to 155 centimeters in length, despite living a sedentary life in ocean sediment and apparently eating nothing more than the waste products of the microorganisms that live in its gills.
