Swarming Monster Worms and Sea Stars Devour a Seal


Here’s a picture of how these gigantic nemertean worms and carnivorous sea stars prowl the Antarctic in search of flesh. This time they found a dead seal and fed from it.

But how can the sea stars eat a sea lion? Well, according to a BBC video, the creatures press their stomachs against the seal’s skin and secrete digestive juices that dissolve the mammal’s tissues… then they suck it up like soup.
