snot nature

So let me just take a minute to talk about the bone eating snot flower. Yup, you read that right. These worms are basically just a sack of sperm with no mouth, butthole, or bones. Oh, and that pretty pink thing on the top of its head is its penis. 

The reason it’s called a bone eating snot flower is because it eats whale bones. So how can a boneless, assless, and mouthless sack of sperm eat bones? Well, it secretes acid to melt the bones and suck up all the juicy lipids found inside. Thank you mother nature, for giving us the bone eating snot flower, as if our oceans weren’t weird and creepy enough already.
