Velvet worms, once thought to be extinct is a fascinating ancient, caterpillar-like animals that have changed little over the last 400 million years.
Don’t let the downy appearance of the velvet worm fool you, they might be nearly blind but these curious creatures hunt their prey by spraying them with an adhesive mucous before sucking out their inside. It can slime its prey from 1-2 feet away, and paralyze it. The slime is also squirted in self-defence. An enemy with a face full of slime gives the velvet worm time to escape.
