Christmas tree worms growing on coral (@ Reinhard Dirscherl/Corbis)
- Would you decorate your Christmas tree with a bunch of these?""“Just hang another Spirobranchus giganteus over there dear”
- These tinsel-like spirals put on such a dazzling display it\s almost insulting to call them worms.""See more of these seasonal sea-creatures
- You won\t find presents under the “boughs” of these trees.""But what on Earth are they rooted to?
- This coral is strewn with enough colour to make it seem like the season to be jolly all year round.""Is it too early to say “happy Christmas”?
