Could you imagine going fishing with this worm on your hook? Imagine the fish it could catch??? I was surprised to see an earthworm this huge, and knowing it can get up to 9ft long is just freaky... Take a look at the pics and let me know what you think? Also, what do you think it tastes like? Chicken?



The Giant Gippsland earthworm averages 3 feet in length, but has been seen as long as 9 feet. It is native to the clay soil along streams in Victoria, Australia. The worms take 5 years to mature and live for about 10, surprisingly long for invertebrates. Unlike other types of worm, the Giant Gippsland rarely, if ever, comes to the surface, but its location can be detected by the audible gurgling that their bodies make as they slither through their labyrinthine burrows.










Now that's what I call survival food!!! hahaha

The best is when it rains and you see pavement, streets, sidewalks, etc. littered with earthworms, now imagine you lived in a place where you didn't have just the 1-2 inch worms but these 3-9 ft worms?? Its like a road bump if you drive over it...hahahaa

When I was young, I was tricked and got one of the smaller ones in my mouth and chewed on it.

A) It DOES NOT taste like chicken,

B) It's like fried brain, without the fried part. It tastes like chewing on your on tenderized snot.

C) Sorry for the mental image. You wanted your ignorance denied. It now is.

That is a scary worm... It must eat fishes...

LOL... It's funny, when you watch those survival shows, they always make it sound like worms don't taste that bad... I figured they would taste as bad as they look

I wouldn't want to fish with it, but it sure is cool!
I would love to see one in "real" life. And hold it.
I wonder if it has the slime, like nightcrawlers?

Lazarus : What? I didn't feed on them. lol And how do you know I'm now large? :O

That said, never believe what is on tv! lol Easier to sell survivalism if you romance it a bit. It's like the doctor telling you it won't hurt...

Ok, great find but that just sounds so gross to me right now.
I haven't had lunch and stomach is growling

In the present case, it would be more proper to talk of a "down under" kind of worm, looking more like the following.



Not boobs.


Glad these worms are in Australia.

In a survival situation do you believe you'd be able to consume that? Not the whole thing, but enough to help you get by...

I'd like to think I could, I just don't know if I'd be able to get pass the gross factor...

I would probably die and it would feed on me. Not even prepared as a soup would I eat it.

Good bait for sharks tho.

PS: I just remembered seeing a worm like that that had been caught by a spider. The spider had eaten half of it. The sucked part looked like a tiny piece of bacon. Fried and salted, I might be tempted... lol
