Hi There,

A friend of mine found this worm (?) a year ago in 15 feet of water in Roatan. After moving across the sand it buried its head by the time she got her camera out. She's searched but can't figure it out. Can anyone here help?

Phylum Sipuncula, Sipunculus nudus. One of several types of worms known as peanut worms due to the marking on the skin & shape when contracted.

Leslie,

You've just made my friends day. She was very excited to finally know. Thanks for being such a great resource.
