Bobbit Worms are a very strange nocturnal predatory worm. They have most of their bodies buried in the sand, with just their frightening looking pincers showing.
I was patiently filming a couple that were close together and my waiting paid off…
..the first Bobbit Worm attacks and eats a foolish Scorpionfish that wandered in too close…
…the second went for a Long Arm Octopus that got too close….I was quite upset, as I Love octopuses, but luckily the plucky little octopus was too tough for the bobbit Worm and escaped after a few seconds..
