Foot-Long Earthworm

(Toledo, OH) The spring rains that soaked the area brought quite a few earthworms out from their subterranean homes today. Among the numerous worms on my driveway and walkways was this large specimen.

The worm motored along the wet paving stones at quite a clip; while snakes would still out-wriggle this creature, the worm nonetheless covered ten feet in about two minutes.

Yet the size of this impressive earthworm loses something once it is captured on a digital format and shelved on the computer memory of a remote server. Better to experience it firsthand.
