Fish eating worm invades aquarium


A giant fish eating worm with jaws twice the width of its body has been discovered hiding amongst coral and rocks in a Hull aquarium.

Staff at The Deep found the one-metre long (3.2ft) Bobbit worm as the rocks were about to be moved into a tank containing other fish.

Aquarist Seb Prajsner said: "It looked like something straight out of a science fiction movie."
