Bloodworm (Glycera)

By Wyatt Evans


Bloodworms can be found in marine waters (non-salt), often at the bottom in a sandy or silty lake.

They have a creamy-pink color, look like a worm, they have 4 small antennae on their head, their body is also covered with something called "parapodia". They are pollution tolerant.

Identification Process

We identified it by the color, and antennas. Yeah, I think this was the right identification. Yes, there are few different types of "bloodworms" so it could be another species. We used the fact that it lives in marine waters to choose this one.
