The BOBBIT WORM

Is it just me or does the Bobbit Worm kind of remind you of the underground creatures from the movie Tremors, Alien or Predators?

A common myth about the Bobbit Worm is that they got their name from the fact that the female worms cuts off the penis of the male worm after mating, and then feeds it to her young.  Remember the John & Lorena Bobbit story.  Well, this is actually not true. In fact, the worms lack penises entirely.
