Comments Off on Taiwanese worm becomes internet sensation with proboscis-shooting talent

It doesn’t take much to become an internet star these days. A shakily shot YouTube video, a squishy green body, and a talent for shooting a pink tongue-like proboscis across the room are all it took for one Taiwanese worm. Hundreds of thousands of people have looked on in awe as this little green ribbon worm shoots a slithery pink proboscis-–like a worm-within-a-worm-–out of its mouth. The proboscis is a stunner used to paralyze prey. Usually ribbon worms, or nemerteans, are found under the ocean and several species grow to a horrifying three feet long. The longest one ever found was almost 200ft long and most of them are carnivores . Our advice? Stay on dry land until further notice.
