On page 18 in the January edition of National Geographic there is a
interesting picture of a Eunice species with jaws wide open. In the article
it is written that the worm is "The size of a small carrot, it emerges from
the sand and spreads jaws that look like miniature ice tongs, used for
capturing small fish."

The reference is below.
