Pink Spotted Earthworm?
March 4, 2010
I hope you can help us identify this unusual worm my husband discovered today while trying to photograph a mole! I didn’t see the worm, but he took several photos and after a brief internet search we’re stumped (not that we would expect otherwise, being that we’re *not* experts!). Is it just a regular earthworm with some kind of disease?
North of Houston, Texas, in Montgomery County
The worm in your photo is sure crazy looking. We cannot say if it is diseased or an unusual species without doing research on the matter, and our time at the moment is limited by other obligations. We hope by posting this quickly, someone will be able to provide us with an answer.
