“Ravenous” Alabama Jumping Worms Invading Southeast
Spiders. Snakes. Cockroaches that fly.
Welcome to Alabama. And Florida, Georgia and pretty much the entire South.
I love the south but hate the critters, I must admit.
Now, get ready for a "snake-like worm" that can JUMP at you and on you.
No thank you.
Merriam Webster defines ravenous as:
"very eager or greedy for food, satisfaction, or gratification"
That's just what I was hoping for. A hungry, jumping, snake-like thing that slithers around my yard or house. How 'bout you?
Happy Easter everybody.
According to Cornell University this "Alabama Jumper" worm is invading the East coast and Southeast at a very rapid pace.
IT ONLY TAKES ONE TO START AN INVASION
That's what all the critter experts say.
Is it venemous? That is an important question. One that we do not really have an answer to at this moment.
Just check this video out. A parasite worm that can turn it's "host" into a zombie.
