The Sand Striker

qhkr4civ8hxujtmlscir

The ocean isn’t here to play around.

This worm, known as a sand striker, buries itself in the ground and can grow up to twice the length of a human. It has no eyes and no brain and yet it can snatch the body and soul (and everything else) of a fish from right out of the ground.

It’s like a terrifying death trap, shooting itself out from the floor and making the fish disappear in an instant. 

I guess now I know the who was the muse behind those gigantic worms of the 80’s epic science fiction film (that could have been even better) Dune!

Although, the mysteries of the oceans remain vast and deep.
