This short clips shows a glimpse of a 'worm' rarely seen and almost never seen alive. This species usually dwells at great ocean depths and thus when caught by sampling devices is most often retrieved in pieces. Most easily seen specimens are preserved and in museums. Borrowing movements involve the proboscis seen shooting forward; the posterior usually anchoring. The 'tail' has been implicated to have a role in respiration, though its true function remains uncertain.
