    They do get big don't they, i was helping with a tank move, we were happily moving all the rock out when this monster fell out of one of the rocks, we got VERY careful after that, it was around 8-10 inches long and nearly as thick as a finger, not good

    I picked this guy up 3 times, the little hairs stuck to my fingers like spikes but didn't hurt.
    I think the guys in the books are "moffies"

    i remember picking one up when i was diving off Gozo, it was about 6inches long and very fat, my fingers were absolute agony, you have been lucky, i wouldn't recommend picking them up regularly;)

    WOW! Nice pics Lanzo! Yeah - good size on that bristle-worm! The bigger they are, the better they consume detritus, hey! ;-)
