Description

We were working in Libya and our job included lots of diving. This time the spot was in one of the few sheltered bays in the Easter side of the Country, Ras al Hilal bay. The place hosted a small fish farm.
This worm, in Italian named "vermocane", was slowly crawling on the bottom underneath the cages.

Description

We were walking on the beach in Tarfaya at low tide. It was impossible to miss such huge reefs! Pieces could also be found ashore, unfortunately. These reefs are extremely fragile.

Interesting to note that, both here and in the Med, fishermen link the presence of these "coral reefs" (they are not corals, of course) with good presence of small catch like breams.

They are found in marine environments from tidal zones to hydrothermal vents, in freshwater, and in moist terrestrial environments.They are bilaterally symmetrical, triploblastic, coelomate organisms.They have parapodia for locomotion. Although most textbooks still use the traditional division into polychaetes (almost all marine), oligochaetes (which include...
