Transcript of What do worms do?
How much can worms eat in a day?
They can eat as much as their own body weight in just one day.
How do worms eat?
Worms don't have any teeth but they have a strong mouth. While they burrow worms "swallow" soil.
Can you cut a worm?
Is that large?
The biggest earthworm ever found was in South Africa and measured 22 feet from its nose to the tip of its tail.
Worms have no arms, legs or eyes.
Worms are not born. They hatch from cocoons smaller than a grain of rice.
Because of accidents
Worms are underground because they are adapted to that particular area; they find food, moisture, and protection from predators. On the surface, they can too easily be found and eaten by birds. They would also get stepped on and suffer more accidental injuries.
Because of Light
Worms retreat from light. They have sensors that are very sensitive to light. They live underground to keep out as much light as possible.
