The worm with red body is wriggling on a man’s hand and spits out a web of white root-like tentacles [called proboscis] that crawl and pulse all over his hand. The creepy looks made us shake and scare to touch.

The worm as per explain in Smithsonian Magazine, is a Ribbon Worm or Phylum Nemerta, with more than 1,000 species, most found in the ocean, there is a huge range of sizes and lifestyles among the various types. A defining characteristic of ribbon worms is the presence of a proboscis—a unique muscular structure inside the worm’s body. When attacking prey, they compress their bodies to push out the proboscis like the finger of a latex glove turned inside-out that contain a neurotoxins that paralyze its prey.
