Pig-butt worm

Yes, that’s it’s name. Also known as the Flying Buttock. It’s Latin name is Chaetopterus pugaporcinus which roughly translates to “resembling a pig’s rump”. Lovely creature, isn’t it? It catches food with a cloud of mucus that surrounds it’s mouth! Don’t you just love the diversity of nature and how it seems to strive to produce as many juvenile giggles as possible for us? Thanks Nature!

And thanks Coilhouse too.
