This Scary-Ass Worm Snatches the Souls of Fish Straight From Its Hole in the Ground

Damn, the ocean isn’t here to play around. This worm, known as a sand striker, buries itself in the ground and can grow up to twice the length of a human. It has no eyes and no brain and yet it can snatch the body and soul (and everything else) of a fish from right out of the ground. It’s like a terrifying death trap, shooting itself out from the floor and making the fish disappear in an instant. Damn.
