Horrifying footage shows a long, bright green worm-like creature with a pink tongue-like appendage wriggling its way along the ground

 

This strange footage was shot in Taiwan recently, by uploader Wei Cheng Jian.

He encountered this strange creature while fishing in a port in Penghu, and

shared the clip to his Facebook page soon afterwards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The strange green mass could be a ribbon worm, or Nemertea.

Ribbon worms are usually found burrowed away in the sea in tropical and sub-tropical regions, however some are known to venture onto land, living in cool, damp places.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The worms have a special proboscis, or feeding tube, which it ejects when hunting.

The ribbon worm uses the proboscis to cover its prey in a thick, poisonous mucus which paralyses its victim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most grow to about 20 centimetres (7.9 in) long, however one was once measured at 54 metres (177 ft) long.
