It's been raining like crazy here in Dallas....so much to where there are many stationary puddles in the backyard, forcing many underground creatures to evacuate their homes. My kids noticed this foot long earthworm on the patio and I was simply amazed at how long that thing was! Back in Chicago, I remember walking to grade school in the rain and trying not to step on the many worms that were on the wet sidewalks. None of them were this long! Here in Texas I really haven't noticed any worms until recently.
Hopefully this big guy made it safely to a new home!
