Earth worm


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
