Not the best video quality but worth a look nonetheless

I agree with mintakax, interesting looking worm. So many interesting creatures in the sea. I grew up by the sea, but now live by the great lakes. They too are impressive, but I still miss the sea.

It looks to have a similar to structure to a rotifer's trophi.

Great use of oblique illumination! I am once again reminded of how nice it must to be live by the sea as a microscopy enthusiast.

Thanks guys, nice thing about an 'exotic' creature (and they do seem to abound in the sea) is that like with 'nessie', sometimes just getting an image will do!
