Earthworms, the little “ecosystem engineers” are important for environment for multiple reasons. But they are not among the adored creatures of earth and by looking at them you can tell why. Number of small earthworms sweeping down on floor cannot be the best sight to behold but imagine a 5-feet earthworm!!! Surely, it will be the creepiest sight.
If earthworms creep you, then beware: this one will give you the worst creeps ever!
This massive creature was discovered all thanks to Lucas Bustamante and Alejandro Arteaga of Tropical Herping for leading this science expedition to the Sumaco Volcano in Ecuador.
So, you have seen tiny earthworms so far but we are presenting a 5- feet earthworm. Now, try to forget it.
