That tube is anywhere from maybe 75%-80% buried in the mud. To me it was almost like finding a dinosaur – something that was pretty much only known by fossils.feedback

Dan Distel has most recently been quoted in an article called Bizarre bivalve: first living giant shipworm discovered in Philippines. Dan Distel said, “Although people have known [these animals] exist, they didn't know the simplest things about them. It was a very mysterious organism. We think, among living biologists, anyway, our group are probably the only group that has seen living specimens. If they want to grow, they have to open that end of that tube, so somehow dissolve or reabsorb that cap on the bottom, grow, extend the tube down further into the mud, and then they seal it off again. Its body has been stretched out through evolution so that it no longer fits between the two shells.”. Dan Distel has been quoted a grand total of 6 times in 1 article.
