Giant earthworm discovered in backyard

In Binchaun County, China, a snake-like earthworm measuring over 19 inches (a half-meter) long was found in a house gutter.

Li Zhiwei, a Forestry Bureau worker, made the discovery and eventually decided to keep the worm and raise it in his backyard.

An adult earthworm's measurements vary by species and can range anywhere from 10mm long and 1mm wide, to 3-meters long and over 25mm wide.
