Deep sea punk worm sucks on marine snow

Say hello to a newly discovered sea worm that looks like it’s sporting a bristly mohawk.

During a series of submersible dives to depths of 3000 metres in the Celebes Sea, researchers found 16 of these swimming worms. The new species, Teuthidodrilus samae, has a dizzying array of tentacles and sensory structures on its head (see picture below) and was described today in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters.
