    Pretty cool critters.

    This is a Christmas tree worm. From Wiki:

    The worm is aptly named, both its common and Latin names refer to the two chromatically hued spiral structures, the most common feature seen by divers. The multicolored spirals are highly derived structures for feeding and respiration.

    I am always impressed by those of you who know these animals but today, I am impressed by anyone who even knew this WAS an animal since I would have guessed “plant” myself.
