Mystery worm-like sea creature causes panic in Taiwan. Horrifying footage shows a long, bright green worm-like creature with a pink tongue-like appendage wriggling its way along the ground.
This strange footage was shot in Taiwan recently, by uploader Wei Cheng Jian.
He encountered this strange creature while fishing in a port in Penghu.
The strange green mass could be a ribbon worm, or Nemertea.
Ribbon worms are usually found burrowed away in the sea in tropical and sub-tropical regions, however some are known to venture onto land, living in cool, damp places.
The worms have a special proboscis, or feeding tube, which it ejects when hunting.
The ribbon worm uses the proboscis to cover its prey in a thick, poisonous mucus which paralyses its victim.
