The Christmas Tree Worm is a beautiful creature that looks like a plastic decoration for a small gold fish take. The Christmas tree worm is a colorful creature that has tree-like crowns that radiate from their central spine. They come in many colors including orange, yellow, blue and white. Christmas tree worms are not very big- averaging 1.5 inches in length. They have appendages that they use to breathe and catch prey. Christmas tree worms generally eat microscopic plants and are stationary- meaning that once they find a place that they like they do not move very often. They hide from predators by hiding in the burrows that they anchor themselves with.
