THE TEREDO. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 19 June 1914

THE TEREDO. Some of the most powerful marauder* apon man's territory belong to the shellfish, wad present themselves as near relations of the oysters, mussels, and their many allies. A.mong these may be ranked the famous shipworm, the teredo of the naturalists.

'As a worm, indeed, it was at first classified bj natura lists. The importance of the shipworm arises from the use it makes of its appa rently insignificant shells. as a boating ap paratus ; and any seaside visitor, residing on a coast where an ocean Bwell or severe storms strew the shore with driftwood, has but to use his eyes to assure himself of the extent, and perfection of the whipworm's labours.
