    Is that what you do in your spare time? What gave you that idea? Worth doing though by the look of things.

    Iv got one of these, he lives in a small hole and only pops about 1cm of his body out at night. As soon as I shine a light where his hole is he pops back inn. Now I know what he is I might just block him inn with some putty.

    i would imagine this thing will just eat its way out like a eunice worm but i could be wrong...

    cheers dave and although it looks very similar, this thing was bright blue and green and short and fat. it didnt stretch out like a worm does but stayed the same shape just like a catipilar

    There are multiple colours of them if you have a gander. Could still be a possibility
