The Telegraph suggests that the nightmare fuel could be some form of our notorious friend, the ribbon worm, which can shoot out a proboscis (an elongated appendage) that the bug worm creature can eject to snag and its prey.
But the gooey green body is the stuff of horror aliens. Movies have taught this to be true.
