  Giant Earthworm

 

Vietnam

Giant Earthworms, i.e. earthworms of the genus Pheretima, come in a variety of colours, from overall pink to slate grey (fig.), yet the colouration is apparently not always uniform, as some seem to have a white underbelly (fig.). This individual, spotted in Bach Ma National Park (fig.) in central Vietnam, is a dark pinkish-grey and measures well over a meter in length (fig.).
