Star horseshoe worm [Amazing Photo of the Day]

star horseshoe worm

Weird looking worm. This bad boy feeds on microorganisms in the water, and¬†hides inside its tube to avoid predators. It’s truly a useless species that serves no purpose whatsoever. A mere maggot has serves a bigger purpose in this world when compared to the star horseshoe worm.

    Just because their purpose hasn’t been yet discovered by people, doesn’t mean that purpose doesn’t exist. Anyway just a quick look on wikipedia will tell you they are part of the food chain, and therefore not useless…you must open up your mind…a lot!

    They are beautiful, especially if you see them underwater; so maybe not useless!
