Fresh off the conveyor belt of your local nightmare factory, here's a worm that exists as a reminder that all horror movie premises originate from real-life experiences. Don't let its fun-in-a-gross-way, neon green, Gak-esque body fool you, this worm's tongue will haunt your thoughts, both asleep and awake.

According to The Independent, this bright blob is a Ribbon Worm, and the slimy pink tendril shooting out of it is called a proboscis, which it uses to paralyze prey before eating it. Oh cool, it's exactly as terrifying as it looks!

The video was supposedly taken on a fishing trip in Taiwan and uploaded to Facebook by Wei Cheng Jian. Although I know worms like this exist, I'm going to pretend this video was created by special effects artists in order to sleep at night.
