The largest earthworm in the United Kingdom was recently found on a Scottish island, Rùm, according to a study.
The worms are as large as snakes, and they’re considered the largest earthworms ever found in Britain, according to new results from the University of Central Lancashire’s Earthworm Research Group.
A team of researchers led by Dr. Kevin Richard Butt found dew worms (Lumbricus terrestris) that have an average weight of 11.6 grams, with some worms reaching 12.6 grams.
Some of the worms got to be as large as 15.6 inches (39.6 cm), which is about three times the length of a normal earthworm.
Experts say the worms have flourished on Rùm island due to a lack of predators and rich soil.
Dr. Butt told the BBC: “These things weigh about twelve and a half grams – but the normal size for these things is about four to five gram.”
“When these things came out of their burrows they were like small snakes.”
