Ice Worms!

via The Anomalist:

They move through seemingly solid ice with ease and are at their liveliest near the freezing point of water. Warm them up slightly and they dissolve into goo.
They're ice worms! Link to a Seattle Times story about these sf thingies. Link to a lengthy Robert Service poem: The Ballad of the Ice-Worm Cocktail. Link to various ice worm pictures.

Ice worms are hereby declared the official invertebrate of fhb.
