Up top, The Pompeii Worm, Alvinella pompejana. It's habitat is on or near Black Smokers, hydrothermal vents on the sea floor. Nestled within its tube, its body stays at a very toasty 175º F, while its plume-like head protrudes from the tube into water that is a much more temperate 72º F. Its fleecy looking coat is a colony of bacteria living in symbiosis with the worm.
