Aquarium shop workers investigating the disappearance of dozens of fish found the culprit - a terrifying three-and-a-half-foot sea worm hidden in a tank for ten years.

The creepy Bobbit Worm - usually found at in the ocean at depths up to 150ft - was discovered preying on fish in the 200 gallon tank.

Ten years and no one spotted it?

How often did they clean  their aquariums out?  surely not every 10 years?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I know, but they don't have so many legs and stuff. It looks like a mix between a millipede and a maggot. I hate maggots.
