Phys.org has a post about a gigantic worm which lived about 400 million years ago. The fossil species was discovered back in 1994 by Derek K Armstrong of the Ontario Geologoc Survey. He had been dropped by helicopter to investigate the rocks and fossils in a remote and temporary exposure in Ontario. The species has been named Websteroprion armstrong, which honors Armstrong and Alex Webster of the Death Metal band Cannabal Corpse (he is regarded as a 'giant' in handling his instrument). The animal possessed the largest jaws ever recorded in this type of creature. The jaws were over one centimeter in length, while normally such jaws would be just a few millimeters.
