These short movie clips relate to an earlier post called Green Leaf Worms at Spaniard Rocks.
The Green Leaf Worm is a marine polychaete worm – Eulalia viridis (Linnaeus) – that can be found moving around looking for food among the barnacles, mussels, and other encrusting organisms that cover the rocks exposed as the tide goes out.
The earlier post only had a still shot of this type of worm so I thought I’d post some mini movies to show them in the action of foraging or hunting for food.
