A strange monster, which is a pink ball of worms, was found near the house by a resident of the city of Houston. He filmed the creation on a video camera.
US biologist Timothy Wood says that the “Sewer monster” found in Texas is not unusual. This, in his words, is really a collection of ordinary earthworms (tubifex). They merged into a ball, as they lost their natural environment – the soil.
“The cuts … are the result of the fact that one worm shrinks and then stimulates everyone else to do the same almost at the same time, so their whole mass looks like one big contraction muscle,” explains the expert.
