The Pompeii Worm (Alvinella pompejana) the most thermal tolerant animal on earth living in temperatures of 80 degrees celsius!approximately four inches long complete with tentacle like gills on its head coloured red by haemoglobin This species lives by clinging around the ‘smokers’ of the hydrothermal vents of the Pacific Oceans mountain ranges.

To survive in this harsh condition the worm grows a centimetre thick thermal blanket across its back that is composed of colonies of filamentous bacteria. Existing in a symbiotic relationship the bacteria is kept alive by the worm feeding it sugar mucus that is rich in eurythermal enzymes and secreted from tiny glands in its back.This bacterium is kept alive by the Pompeii worm by feeding it sugar mucus that is rich in eurythermal enzymes and secreted from tiny glands in its back.
