Hi folks,

It's a story in the press but tantalisingly light on specifics.


The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) said the fossil creatures, giant marine worms, lived in horizontal galleries of five metres in length and 15-20 centimetres in diameter under the seabed. That is the 'fossilised tracks' found in the Cabaneros National Park are that size.

A 20 cm diameter worm? Yep, that would be a giant alright!!
