Social Feather-Duster Worms
Tiny Social Feather-Duster Worms live in colonies on the reef. Their heads are about one inch across and they live in tubes that are several inches long. In this picture you can see the tubes in which the Feather-Duster Worms live. When they feel threatened, they pull their heads down into their tubes in the blink of an eye. Social Feather-Duster Worms catch plankton in their nets of tissue on their heads.
