FACT OF THE DAY:
Living underground and mostly out of sight, squiggly earthworms seem like such humble, mundane organisms — that is, unless it’s Australia’s Giant Gippsland earthworm, which is believed to be the world’s largest species of worm. Found only in the Bass River Valley of South Gippsland, the Giant Gippsland worm measures on average 3.3 feet long, and 0.79 inches in diameter, and weighs about 0.44 lb., however, these long-lived invertebrates can survive up to 5 years or more, maturing to a whopping 9.8 feet in length.
Highly sensitive to aboveground vibrations, the Giant Gippsland responds to unknown intruders’ footsteps by moving away, producing audible squelching noises that can be clearly heard on the surface.
The Giant Gippsland worm is currently classified as a protected species, its numbers having been reduced by the introduction of agriculture into this region of Australia. Other limiting factors include its low rate of reproduction and slow development — the giant worm produces one large egg capsule of 4 to 7 centimeters (2.75 inches) in length, which takes one year to incubate into a single offspring.
