Meet The Bigfoot Of Earthworms


Researchers recently discovered earthworms the size of snakes on the Scottish Island of Rum in the UK. They are believed to be the largest worms in Britain. Some of the worms grew over 15 inches in length and weighed in at over 12 grams. They're kind of like the bigfoot of earthworms, especially in the UK where they are three times larger than typical earthworms.

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.”

      I hate to admit that you're right, but that's me. I come back after swearing off after a few weeks, even though it's a shadow of the good old days when we had the Recipe Guy, and Captain Jack Bindernagel, the Mayor....hell, it seems we've even lost the Poop in Jar Guy. What happened to the guy who said I didn't realize the evident for Bigfoot was this good, no matter what the post was? Ah, good times.

    3. I hear what you are saying. The Mayor was a personal favorite of mine. I too miss the witty posts that actually had some thought put into them. Now days all we seem to get is the same repetitive jokes although there is a spark of comedy genius every now and then (and I don't mean Mike Brookreson). If you can't have a good laugh on this crazy site then what good is it?

  6. I consider myself the Bigfoot of filmmakers, ha ha ha! I'm kidding. It's just something people have called me since I helmed my legendary fright-film about the imaginary beast.

    It's true, the wait is over, the sequel to Clawed: the Legend of Sasquatch is in the can (that's Industry-speak for being completed!)

    The title will be either Clawed 2: the Legend of Sasquatch, or Clawed: the Legend of Sasquatch 2, depending on where it is distributed. In Puerto Rican, and other Mexican territories, it will be known as "America's Clawed Too: Bigfoot is Back"

    There are no current plans for a U.S. release other than VOD, and a special edition Betamax boxed-set, available near the impulse basket at Jons supermarket in, Hollywood, CA.

    I typically don't bother commenting on seldom-viewed Bigfoot sites such as this, but I wanted to give your readers a chance to pre-order what is surely going to be either the first or second most beloved film about the mythical monster-giant known by the Apache as Sasquatchawa.

    I will be in touch with ordering info, and a chance for your readers to win a promotional standee of yours truly from the 2007 Comicon premiere of my uproarious comedy Skid Marks.

    Best,

    Karl

    4. I actually liked Clawed, but I'm not sure it needs a sequel. That is, unless it somehow delves into the multi-dimensional aspects of Bigfoot.

    1. bigfoots are real
      Aliens and UFOs not so much

      Delete
    2. Aliens are real, but ufos are not. Also, Bigfoot comes from ufos, which are not real, and they aren't aliens. Hope that helps.
