Description

For more information on the habitat and vegetation of the area this plant was observed in and on the weather that day, please see the journal entry for April 23, 2012 here on iNaturalist. I found this little worm while trying to see what the roots of a plant looked like. It was clinging to the roots in the dirt and I pulled it out to get a better look at it. It was about two or three inches long and was a light to dark red color. These worms are not usually found in soil, but it was too small and lacked the large band of an earthworm, so I had to conclude it was a "red wriggler" as it is commonly called. These worms are often used in compost.
