Stitched Sealife: Bone-eating Snot-flower worms meet the Giant Sloth
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 17, 2010
Six stitched specimens from the Deep Sea have escaped in the Museum. This is where we found the second of the Stitched Sealife Six…
Lurking a grand 2500 metres below the sea this little lot came a long way to get to the Museum. This made them hungry. It seems they went in search of a bone-based lunch. They were last seen eyeing the skeleton of a Giant Sloth.
You are by no means to approach these tiny nibbing worms, which have been known to strip entire whale carcasses on the sea bottom.
They are to be considered hungry and dangerous escapees. You have been warned.
Come back tomorrow for the Deep Sea story of another stitched sealife escapee.
You can also come along to the Natural History Museum August 27 to Stitch a Squid and join in the hunt for them.
