This giant worm that chomps fish with its horrible jaws will make your skin crawl
The documentaries of David Attenborough have been delighting the UK for decades.
But in with the wonder of nature, the BBC likes to mix a healthy dose of horror.
Along with adorable fishies and turtles, this Sunday’s Blue Planet II featured a creature straight out of your nightmares.
Enter the bobbit worm.
One. Metre. Long.
The sea is basically full of sci-fi horrors.
As well as being pretty freaked out by the Bobbit in general, many were puzzled by its name.
Well the internet asked, and the internet answered.
You can as it was named after Lorena Bobbit who chopped her husbands penis off. fact!!!

Rather fitting – possibly making them seem even more horrifying!

Why. Why would you do this to us, science?
