Giant Palouse Earthworm

giant palouse earthworm

You might well think that there is nothing uglier than a worm. Well you are wrong.  There is one thing- a GIANT worm.

The giant Palouse earthworm is one of the largest earthworms in the world, being able to grow up to a meter in length.  It is pasty white and what is worse, spits when it is angry.  It does have one redeeming feature though. For some reason, when handling it, it gives off an odour like that of lilies.

Habitat destruction and invasive species have made this once common monstrosity a rare sight.
