What is this strange rug-like creature? It's a Sea mouse, a marine #worm! The body is covered in #iridescent bristles, giving the worm it's furry fibre-optic appearance. Sea mice are active predators, and range from coastal waters to depths of up to 3,000 metres! #WormWednesday https://t.co/kT8h9IxGrs
