Description

The local indigenous peoples living in Chino farm these worms during the wet season as most land becomes flooded, making it hard otherwise to find worms for fishing. Our guide also told us that they would cut the worms into pieces using their teeth believing that would improve the flavour for the fish. One end was rather blunt compared to worms I have seen elsewhere while the other end was pointed like that of many other earth worm species
