I don’t think it’s controversial to say that ocean-dwelling creatures are pretty much the worst. Sure, on land we have spiders and rabid animals, but those things that inhabit the deep sea are so creepy, especially when you consider just how little we know about them. One critter that we do know a bit about is the innocent-sounding bearded fireworm. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); The bearded fireworm is a kind of marine bristleworm native to the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.
