The ribbon worm:

The Nemertea, also called ribbon worms or proboscis worms, (and sometimes referred to as Rhynchocoela or Nemertini,) are a distinctive group of 1150 known species of mostly marine invertebrates, found world-wide (Gibson, 1995). Nemerteans have an unsegmented body, thin and elongated with no differentiated head. (according to wiki)

  • Smallest ribbon worm is less than a centimeter.
  • They can shrink 10% less then their body length
