hmms guess the answer to this question seems quite subjective too - and depends on which type of flexibility is discussed?

I would have to say worms are the most flexible. I saw parasitic worms on a TV show that could tie themselves in knots in their hosts stomach.

I mean what animal is most flexible tha thas a bone structure. I should have been more specific. It is obviously easier to be flexible without one. I am intrerested in the collagenated or simmilar atributes that allow for flexibility in animals. Its a subject close to my heart since I have hypermobility type Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I was curious if there are any manifestations in animals that make them abnormaly flexible considering thier skeletal structure.
