"zombie" worm that feeds on the bones of dead whales ! October 22, 2005 7:17 PM

'Zombie' worms found in North Sea shallows By Steve Connor, Science Editor Published: 19 October 2005 A bizarre species of "zombie" worm that feeds on the bones of dead whales has been discovered living in the relative shallows of the North Sea. The worm belongs to a new class of marine organism that has made a speciality out of scavenging on the huge carcasses of whales. Scientists were amazed to have found an entirely new species in an area of the ocean that they considered to be one of the most intensively studied marine habitats.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
