I live down here in Louisiana. We have a species of worm that gets about 12-16 inches long and are about 1/3 smaller than a pencil in diameter. I've been catching these and offered them to a friend that lives a few blocks away who was interested in getting some of the "foot long worms" I was getting. I caught about 6 dozen of them and went by to give him his worms. He looked at them and said basically "oh, I thought you had the big worms". He described worms the size of small snakes that made burrows kind of like what crayfish make. He said when you grab them they shake so hard they can pull free of your hand. He gets them from his back yard when it rains. I've lived in Louisiana for most of my life and I've never seen or heard of a worm this size. Do any of you know what kind of worm this is. I was thinking he's got the same species of worm in his yard that I gave him but they're just a lot more healthy. Anywho, that my question. Anybody seen or heard of a worm that big?
