Above image: This may look like a gruesome monster from the latest sci-fi event movie, but it is in fact a real creature.
No need to panic, though, as the hydrothermal worm is so tiny it requires a powerful microscope to see it.
The organism, only slightly larger than a bacterium, lives in deep sea near hydrothermal vents that spew hot water from beneath the Earth’s crust.
The striking image, captured by Phillippe Crassous, is one of a gallery of minute wonders taken using FEI scanning electron microscope equipment.
