Here you see a picture of the earthworm.
I found this Earthworm under the tree trunk in my back yard. That tree trunk is standing there because my mother likes that. Under that tree trunk, there were also a some other animals, like the black garden ant, and next to it, there also was a moor frog. I think the Earthworm is a dirty animal, because he is so smooth and dirty.
The earthworm lives almost in the whole world except for Antarctica and dry climates.
He lives on the land, under the ground, between the sand. He also lives in freshwater.
The earthworm can become 9 to 30 centimeters. The body exists of many segments, 110 to 180. The earthworm can become 10 years.
Vegetable dead food is eaten by the earthworm. He also eats rotting plants, leaves and poop of other animals. The earthworm also eats other earthworms when they are dead. De enimies of the earthworm are many different birds, hedgehogs, the mole and different insects like slugs, beetles and flatworms.
The earthorm is hermaphrodite. This means that he is a man but also a women. They come together and stick to eachother trougth the skin brush. Then they exchange the seedcels. The sperm stays in the earthworm untill his eggs are ready. During a couple of months the seed is good for producing eggs without a new fertilization.
