The Kid Should See This

A Protula bispiralis (red fan worm) opening in real time

Set to the MIT Chamber Chorus performing O Fortuna from Carmina Burana, this is a Protula bispiralis or red fan worm opening in real time. The clip is via marine biologist Christopher Mah who suggests that “you will probably never see a more dramatic opening for a serpulid polychaete than this video.” It’s true.
