Phoronid Worm; Phoronis australis

The Phoronid worm Phoronis australis looks at first sight like a tube worm, but it isn’t. They have their own unique Phylum and are usually found living on the outer wall of tube anemones. They also use haemoglobin to transport oxygen around their bodies – 20 times more efficiently than we do!
This creature is not often seen on your normal scuba diving trips!
