Christmas is not an event that is commemorated on arid land only and the credit for this goes to a number of mesmerizing petite creatures who lend the submarine world a joyful touch. This genus, which has the scientific name of Spirobranchus giganteus, is most frequently called by Christmas tree worm, which is its colloquial name. Breeding in the tropical parts throughout the globe, these beings erect calcium carbonate-based constructions that defend them against predators.
On the coast being clear, these emerge from their shells and push out as mini Christmas trees do. Fastened to their vivacious, coiled spines are tentacles that are like hair that aid them in breathing and collecting food particles. via [The Dodo, ViralNova, About Education] | via mymodernmet
