Pigbutt worm

Odd Creatures is a recurring column about the world’s weirdest species written by award-winning science writer and author Bec Crew, and illustrated by the super-talented Aiyana Udesen

 

Look at this animal. Just look at it. It’s glorious.

Found almost a kilometer below the surface of the ocean, this hazelnut-sized marine worm lives, breathes, and floats around looking exactly like a tiny, perfectly plump rear end.

The species was discovered floating freely through the ocean in 2006 by a remotely operated vehicle off the coast of California. This little submerged research robot scooped up a handful of pigbutt worms, and Karen Osborn, a marine biologist from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, got to analyze and name them. So she called them Chaetopterus pugaporcinus, which in Latin literally means “worm that looks like a pig’s rump”.

This otherworldly purplish bubble creature with its pink, puckered mouth is unlike any other species of worm ever found. In trying to figure out what the pigbutt worm’s deal is, Osborn compared her specimens to several other known species of marine worm. She was able to find some physical similarities between her pigbutt worms and the larvae – or young – of a large family of marine worms worms called Chaetopteridae, so perhaps, she thought, her pigbutt worms were in their juvenile form?
