~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

:happy: WORM DAY  :happy:

To celebrate the worm moon March 7th this year is officially Worm Day :ozwomp: I encourage you to prepare all your worm concentric media to share on the day  :grin: Its important to remember that worms play a vital role in our eco system, they aerate the soil and make way for things to grow; which in turn feeds plants, and us! Without worms there would be no life at all, and even worse, no funky websites :O In short, worms are actually responsible for the web revival and we are simply doing their bidding, I bet you never even considered that!!

Don't forget to visit the forum worm ~~~~

Here is a quick guide to making a worm farm:

Happy Worm Day everyone!
It's still winter here so unless I go digging for them under permafrost, won't see any for a bit yet.

Big shoutout to Terry's Worm Log on Hypnospace  :cool:

If anyone is in the UK (or anywhere really); Id like to take a moment to shout out the Earthworm Society of Britain; https://www.earthwormsoc.org.uk this is a society you can become a member of to support and promote worms in Britain!

Ireland does not have anything comparable; but the government here has provided an interesting study on worm distribution around the island! https://maps.biodiversityireland.ie/Dataset/215

shout out to a distant relative of the earthworm, the nematode (aka roundworms)! ~~~~
Quote
If all the matter in the universe except the nematodes were swept away, our world would still be dimly recognizable, and if, as disembodied spirits, we could then investigate it, we should find its mountains, hills, vales, rivers, lakes, and oceans represented by a film of nematodes. The location of towns would be decipherable since, for every massing of human beings, there would be a corresponding massing of certain nematodes. Trees would still stand in ghostly rows representing our streets and highways. The location of the various plants and animals would still be decipherable, and, had we sufficient knowledge, in many cases even their species could be determined by an examination of their erstwhile nematode parasites.
-  Nathan Cobb (1914) "Nematodes and their relationships"
nematodes, specifically the species Caenorhabditis elegans, have been used as a model to study animal development since the 1960s. these tiny worms are some of the simplest creatures that have nervous systems, so they have been essential in research on neural circuits. while i've never worked with them myself, i'm having a lot of fun exploring wormatlas.org to learn more. there is a possibly overwhelming amount of information accessible there, so i'd recommend starting with the introduction to C. elegans anatomy or the movie gallery.

Oh! On a relative of the humble earthworm, my beloved leeches, the Greek & Latin roots used in the names of their taxa are Bdella & Hirudo! I just think they sound neat

I prefer isopods over worms, but worms definetly earn my respect. Odd creatures with lots of odd powers. Which animal can be cut in half and lives on with no problem whatsoever?

Here is another worm hero from a video game: Simply being called "Worm" from Monster Rancher Battle Card 2. Tough guy, far from being prey.

Its important to note that this is largely an urban myth! Please do not cut worms in half, they will not survive! A worm can loose the end of its tail and it can regrow that, but it's still not a nice thing to do at all :sad:

While Planaria are a type of worm, flatworms are vastly different than annelids such as earthworms or leeches (or roundworms, e.g. pinworms)

Allright, myth busted then. Thank you for clarifying! Respect to all the worms out there. Even tapeworms. If you want to lose weight, hire some tapeworms.
