This Worm?, is structured like a centipede. it has 30-40 legs.it looks like a different species than the regular Sea Worms I see near shore in shallow water, which is all tissue and have seen them as long as 2-3 feet. this one seems to have a bone structure. its back and sides is tissue, but its underside is bony. I got this one in 200 feet of water. among a bunch kelp that came up in gillnets. I was thinking it is a baby Sea worm, don't know what it is. it crawls ( actually slithers ), using its legs. it is 3 " long and 3/4" wide, and it it curls up when touched.
