This University of Delaware interactive web page combines text, images, video, and audio clips to describe the Pompeii worm (Alvinella pompejana), the most heat tolerant animal on Earth. Features of this site include: a 3-D visual which allows users to manipulate and view the organism from all angles, a video that shows the worm feeding on bacteria in its habitat, and audio clips that enhance images of the worm and its hydrothermal vent community.
