Description

For more information on the habitat and vegetation of the area this common earthworm was found, please see the journal entry for March 27, 2012 here on iNaturalist. For information on the weather that day, please see the journal entry for April 27, 2012 here on iNaturalist as well. I found this rather long earthworm being attacked by a crow in a clearing near Hansee Hall. The crow flew off and left the worm behind alive and well when I approached, so I decided to take a picture of it. This earthworm was about 6 inches long and had the characteristic clitellum of annelid worms like earthworms. Part of its back end appeared to have been ripped open by the crow and picking it up got my fingers covered in a thick, clear goop. I'm sure the crow came back to finish what it started when I left.
