NOPE

No worries, that’s a Bobbit Worm. They live on the ocean floor, and unless you’re able to withstand a ton of pressure, you likely wouldn’t have your toesies nipped off by one since they live deeper than people walk on the ocean floor.

Bobbit Worms are kinda cool. And they were named after Laurena Bobbit, who cut off her abusive husband’s penis and threw it out of her car window as she drove off.

Wait.

THIS IS WHY YOU BECOME A MARINE BIOLOGIST.  YOU GET TO FIND NEAT SHIT IN THE OCEAN AND GIVE IT UTTERLY BATSHIT INSANE NAMES.
