Marine Worms

Nereis-pelagicaMarine worms are creepy. Really, really creepy. One might even say nightmarish.

On the flip side, they also look stunning. Alexander Semenov is an amazing photographer of creepy crawly things living in the sea. He’s just released some incredible images (like the one to the left) of these marine worms, also called polychaetes. Large versions of some of the worms can be seen over at Colossal. What’s fascinating is that many of the worms photographed by Alexander are unknown to science, and are currently in the process of being classified.

Which is your favourite creepy crawly? Onwards!
