Time again for another amazing creature. The picture below is not photoshopped or electronically altered in any way. It’s a real picture of a real creature: the Hydrothermal Worm.
The picture is taken with the aid of an electron microscope and is magnified 525 times. The worm lives in the depths of the sea and is one of the smallest animals in existence (only 568/1000 of a millimeter). They are mostly found near hydrothermal vents in the ocean floor. So, thankfully, you don’t need to worry about stepping on one in your pool.
But . . . just imagine coming across one of these guys, except instead of being microscopic, he was about 6 feet long — whoa! gives me a whole body shiver.
