Volcanic Vent Freak

Miss Cellania sent me this photo and it literally made me cringe from the computer--and I thought I was pretty hardened after almost a year and a half of posting on ugly critters...

You're looking into the mug of an annelid wom, found near a deep-sea volcanic vent. It looks like a muppet gone wrong. Perhaps Jim Hensen stayed up too late one night and forgot his coffee.

That looks like a muppet in a luchadore mask!

...I think I've been watching too much Mexican wrestling lately.

It's time to play the music
It's time to light the lights
It's time to get things started
On the Muppet Show tonight!
Yikes!

You've got to love the flexibility of the vermicular body plan. :D
