Speaking of feel, it has five antennae, which are used to find and feel prey as they wait. Bobbits also have toxins in their jaws, used to kill the prey and to make it easier to digest.

Reproduction:Not much is known about boobit worm mating. Males lack penises and the bobbit worm mates at an immature age.

Relationships with other animals:Neat trivia, it got its name based on the rumor that the female removed the males penises, because of this it was named after the John Wayne and Lornea Bobbitt incident.
