Scientists find horrifying jet black sea worm in the Philippines
Mashable - 04/18/2017
Hidden beneath its tusk-like shell is a jet-black, slippery and slimy sea creature that looks like it came off the set of Alien.
Scientists said on Monday that they’ve discovered the first living specimen of a giant shipworm in a Philippine bay.
People have known of the huge mollusk for hundreds of years, by the shells they’ve left behind that were the size of baseball bats. But scientists have only seen dead specimens.
