This creature is probably the most terrifying thing we’ve ever seen. It’s called a Bobbit Worm, and it hides in the ocean floor waiting to catch its prey. It’s ‘a mix between the Mongolian death worm,the Graboids from Tremorsthe Bugs from Starship Troopers, and a rainbow’.

It can grow up to 10-ft. long, and it’s one of the most mysterious scientific discoveries currently being researched. It’s name is derived from the story of John and Lorena Bobbit, which we’re not exactly comfortable discussing. If you know the story, you’ll get the reference.
