πŸŽ„Don't look for presents under 𝘡𝘩π˜ͺ𝘴 tree.🎁

A common sight in NOAA's Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary, these β€œtrees” are actually worms! The colorful β€œpine needles” of these animals are actually their gills which is why they are so quick to rush back into their holes when approached. We like to think that the fishmas tree worm (𝘚𝘱π˜ͺ𝘳𝘰𝘣𝘳𝘒𝘯𝘀𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘨π˜ͺ𝘨𝘒𝘯𝘡𝘦𝘢𝘴) is just as excited about today as we are!
