Polychaetes, or bristle worms, are very common with over 10,000 species described so far. Each has evolved and adapted to perfectly fit their specific environmental niche.

They all have bristles on their segmented bodies – in fact ‘polychaeta’ means ‘many bristles.’

They come in an impressive range of sizes from just 1mm to over 9 feet long!
