Fibre-optic like display

From Michael and Rosemarie McMaster – “Here are photos of a strange worm that Al Broadhurst found in his catch a few days ago.
We have sent the pictures off to Pat Hutchings at the Australian Museum who has identified the family of worms it belongs to – Polychaete Flabelligeridae (note from Libby – is that name for real?). We are attempting to get the remains of the worm to Pat so as she may be able to identify genus and species.
 Half way through photographing, it excreted a vibrant green jelly substance seen on some of the photos. This happened after I bumped the dish the animal was in while trying to get in close for a shot.
Its whiskers remind me of my Christmas tree with its fibre-optic lighting colours. These are its true colours.
 We hope you are impressed – we were.”
