Giant Sea Worm Attacks Reef

Nature has a funny way of producing things that are far more terrifying than humans can come up with on their own. After weeks of mysterious destruction in their aquarium tanks, staff at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium in the UK discovered a 4-foot long worm-like creature with what can only be described as Tremor-like jaws (pictured above).

Staff eventually lured it out with fish scraps, but not before it bit through 20lb fishing line.

The tropical worm is covered in thousands of bristles which are capable of inflicting a sting resulting in permanent numbness.

It must suck to be the person that discovered the sting of this thing. Luckily for me, I would have just had a heart attack and died on the spot, sparing me from future shocks. It's also nice that they had time to name it something cute like Barry instead of immediately killing it and trying to find its alien heart. Can someone please call Kevin Bacon and get that god damn thing off of my planet, please!
