Tidepool Tim says, "Bloodworms are popular in Maine for their use as aquaculture feed.  What makes them visually interesting it what happens when they attack!  They're carnivorous and capture food by extending a large proboscis containing four sets of hollow jaws.  The jaws are attached to gland filled with venom painful even to a human.  Even so, I have handled them so many times and don't run into trouble."
