This Terrifying Worm Snatches Fish from the Ocean Floor

NARRATOR: Deep on the
ocean floor, the sand striker, or Bobbit worm,
waits with multiple mouth parts displayed. Bone-hard grappling hooks,
poised to pierce and immobilize prey. But the real nightmare
remains unseen. Coiled, pent-up aggression,
as long as an arm. And some specimens grow to
twice the length of a man. As night falls, many sand
strikers emerge to feast. It’s a bad neighborhood
to hang out in. But fish are fast, and the sand
strikers are feeding blind. They don’t have eyes or a brain. They react only if one of
their antennae is triggered, or if a shadow lingers. Patience– gotcha! And the sand strikers
are just getting started. It’s time for the main course. Underground, there’s
plenty of storage space. Anything on the sea
bed is fair game. Even spikes and
venom are no match. Gone in seconds. Massacre over. The strikers withdraw to
digest, until the next time.
