Hi folks,

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

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090803/sc_afp/sciencepaleontologywormspain 

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!!
