Comments from Youtube

Percival : Mother Nature sure knows how to clean up by itself.

DJPea : Who else thought this was a re-upload? Great work nevertheless!

Avery Lopez-Baines : Aw man, I wish it was the ALASKAN BULL WORM

Frog Glen : Lemino is better than Watchmojo You are better than infographics

OwlClan YT : “He died chasing a pokemon across the street” I died.

Zákrom11 : The visuals look MUCH better than the older video

Dragon Slayer : I need this worm to get into my safe xD

Connor Fujishige : I remember the original episode. But all the small details like the bubbles in the current and the small particles released by the bacteria and the developed environment around the main focus adds so much more. That whale drowning (dying) scene was prob my favorite. I'm not entirely sure why, but it just looks so good.

Kristóf Szilvási : * Dishonored players breathing heavily *

al145 : All the more reason to educate people on how the fossil record works. It's like looking at a series of photos, but some might be missing or damaged. It doesn't mean we can't figure out what happened between, it's just not as easy or definitive. And just because some time periods have more or better fossils doesn't necessarily mean we understand those times better than others, it depends on the kinds of fossils, because one ecosystem is not representative of the entire global environment.

Tng Jia Sheng : Whew, I thought YouTube took the original down or demonetized it

Pothead Pikachu : You sound just like my German science teacher.

CrestFallen : I felt I already have watched this video 🤔🤔🤔 Edit: i saw the comment of him, didnt saw that XD this video was old hahaha

Rei : So the female worm is essentially hoarding children for purely reproductive purposes. What's the ocean's equivalent of the FBI?

Barbara Hammer : wow who discovery them zombie worms ?? thank you okay show..

Void Sniper : my bone only lasts up to 3 min :)

TheSaltyBoy SaltyMcSaltFace : Wait, haven’t you already made a video of these worms? Or am i thinking of another channel

Peter Alves : I wonder what will happen if they contact human bone...

Hyperion : So...whens the ALASKAN BULL WORM video gonna happen?

First Name Last Name : "Hey Baybeh, Wanna see mah BONE WORM?"

Cosmic Rift : Looks like those red infection things the flood use in halo

Salish : can you please add english caption to each video? because you sounds like german google automatically add german as auto caption. I'm not good in english so please notice me and sorry for bad hearing

SonofRiggnarok : It might not have any new info but I sure paid much more attention to this one. They're such pest!

themutantlizard : I speculate that these worms were around since the Devonian period

Tony Solar : Janitors of the SEA.. I thank you all.

Avery- nii : Love the music

koimaxx : "Osedax" does sound like some brand of office appliance :D

ROUVEYROLL ASHER : you got a zombie fettish or what? last time you talked about fly's being zombies or something now whale bones being zombies?

Andrew Wilkinson : Your art of bones at the bottom of a colourful ocean would make a nice, animated screensaver or background.

I C : The only Bone-Eating Zombie Worm that I know is my ex wife.

Indoraptor Unstopable : Wait, you did this before

Samalay R.N. Kashyap : "He died chasing a Pokemon actor a busy street " 🤦🏻‍♂️😂 0:03

Legov7 : Also I already watched the old version of this video not long ago, it was still an entertaining experience. The improvement was clear even without having both videos open side to side. Good job. This animation style really fits the topic and genre (?) of your videos.

GAME TUBE : Why do you sound like a guy I heard from minecon 2018?

Anime watcher-Welcome : I think the nature have secret to be hidden in our future

Weeb- Desu : "He died chasing a Pokemon across a busy street." This isnt real..... right?

Insane Lamaa : How tf do we even know this in such detail... Humans are amazing really

thomas smith : Skelton army is lossing its tanks to these worms

10000 subscriber with out a video : Ive been subbed since you had 63 subs and i liked your videos alot

〈Clex〉 : Halo 3: Origins

ItsRainingGopniks 123 : we need to release this on the feminists

Kulf Greymoon : Well pretty interesting, but nothing you said about the worm relates to zombie, kinda misleading. They're feeding off inanimate corpses, not mind controlling like the one with ants.

Gray filter Guy : "It was discovered recently ,in 2002"

inue windwalker : I can't lie even though this is just animated replicas... It still gave me chills... I hope there aren't a species that live on.... /living/ tissues

Fox Plays : You are fake the earth has not eaven been alive for 1mil
