Not just another pretty face

Although you have to admit that the colours are nice.

My polychaete worm in the aquarium, about 6 inches long stretched out.

Zooming in. Those green fang-like structures are just palps, sensory organs. So are all the tentacles.

Standing tall

At one point while I was watching, Mr. Worm stretched out and up to the surface of the water. He moved too fast for me, so I ended up cutting off the tips of his palps. And he never gave me a second chance.


  1. The colours are lovely!! Although I am not sure I would want him in my house...
    The roses are wonderful in the next post, too!

  2. I don't mind him in my house, since he's behind glass. On occasion, I've had him - very briefly and by accident - in my hand. I jumped and yelped. I don't want him there!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
