Earth worm

Earthworm

Earthworms carry air and water under ground by burrowing.
Their bodies are covered with bristles, which helps them to grip as they wriggle along their tunnels.
Earthworms have a saddle where their eggs are made. The saddle is nearer the head end so it can be used to tell one end of a worm from the other.

Earthworms feed on: dead and rotting plant material
Earthworms are food for: moles, birds, hedgehogs, frogs and badgers
