Polychaete Worm

Description:

Large, swimming polychaete worm, maybe around 2 feet long. I have never seen one swimming; I usually find them in the sand or under rocks. This one was also exceptionally large. Watch the video to see its amazing swimming. It looks like it is jetting out water from its rear end, but that could just be bubbles coming off it.. It's hard to be sure.

Habitat:

Harbor
