Bobbit (Eunice aphroditois)  Es un anélido poliqueto. Vive en el fondo oceánico. Entierra su cuerpo en una cama de arena, grava, barro o corales, allí espera pacientemente a un estímulo en una de sus cinco antenas, atacando cuando detecta la presa. Está armado con dientes afilados, capaz de atacar a una velocidad que corta a su presa en dos. Aunque caza, es omnívoro. Los investigadores creen que la reproducción es sexual. Estos gusanos pueden llegar a tamaños cercanos a los 3 m.
