This is Ellen, and she gave me quite a jump scare the other day!
So I received some samples from the Baltic sea, and Ellen the Bristle Worm was in one of them. I was watching Ellen move on the microscope slide, I was thinking that she kinda looked cute with those eyes.
And then she pushed a freaking mandible out and scared the bejesus out of me! It was like an alien coming out of her. I don't know much about bristle worms, and definitely did not know that they can do this!
Please treat me with some knowledge on bristle worms in the comments, so we all can learn something!
Thank you for reading!
