Biology Thorny-headed worms, or acanthocephalans, are parasites that live in the gut of vertebrates and - earlier in their life cycle - within invertebrates. The thorny protrusible proboscis is globular or cylindrical; the body also may bear spiny thorns. These parasitic worms anchor themselves with their proboscis and body spines to the gut wall of a host. [details]
