Earthworms are fascinating tiny creatures with amazing powers. They are of great help in the garden and on farming fields, as they enhance the growth of plants. Poor quality soil will have about 250,000 worms per acre, while good quality soil, such as farm land, will have 1.75 million of them.

Earthworms are able to regenerate most lost segments of their bodies, though this varies somewhat from species to species and the extent of the damage. Would you believe that South African earthworms can grow as large as 22 feet long with the average length being 6 feet?

They are hermaphrodites (i.e. an animal with both male and female sex organs). So when they mate, both worms produce children.

This highly informative infographic will surely spur your students’ interest in these fascinating little fellows.
