Texas sized worm piles found on highway after flood

The deluge that flooded parts of Texas over the past week created a strange sight on a patch of the state's highways: clumps of worms along the center line. Thousands of worms, initially mistaken for discarded spaghetti, were found in Eisenhower State Park in Denison, Texas. As for the mysterious clumping behavior, Sharon Hill of the site looked into the case and noted that "Actually, research has been done on red wigglers that tend to clump in compost piles. Worms communicate by close contact with other. They may gather en masse when conditions are not quite right or in the open, then move, in a herd, to a safe location." Because the road was closed due to flooding, the center line was the safest and driest place for the worms to be. Credit: Texas Parks and Wildlife
