Those suckers are nasty!
I know they are supposed to be mainly Indo, but I could almost swear that I saw one of them years ago in West Palm Beach inlet here in Florida. It was poking its head out of the sand and at first I thought it was a tube anemone but I still wonder...

Check out this article on the 4 footer they found at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium:

I see Practical Fish Keeping has made a variation on this theme:

http://www.practicalfishkeeping.CO2.uk/pfk/pages/item.php?news=2279

Never made the connection to the popular name until then!

The video looks like the same one FB gave the links to.

Cheers,

Jimbob.

Now that's scary! I sure hope they aren't in FL waters! Rays and stuff I'm familiar with but that looks like what the movie Tremors was based on!!!!! Shocked
