NOAA Photo Library Image - expl0116

Charleston Bump Expedition. A curly worm. This beautiful orange segmented worm, A Syllid (related to earthworms), has long white appendages called "dorsal cirri" on every segment. They curled in and out from its body like the paper party favors that children get at birthday celebrations. Captured August 3 on Dive 3406.
