Three Worms for Sister Leslie

These three photos are for our good friend Leslie Harris, aka WormGirl. The first two photos are of a worm (25cm) eating a Dendronephthya soft coral. This worm (actually there were two wrapped around the soft coral) was either so full it couldn't move, dead, or otherwise catatonic.

This second photo shows a better angle of the 'mouth' of the worm.

And finally, this is a close-up of the worm that posted a few days ago. Leslie has identified this worm as Alcyonosyllis phili. For those of you who share Leslie's passion for worms, check out the recent description of this worm at:
