Earthworm facts: their poop is pretty legit | Animal Fact Files

In North America, earthworms are an invasive species. They were brought over with colonizers thinking the worms would benefit the soil in the "new world." While earthworms can be quite helpful to the ground in which they live, they can also cause problems in certain ecosystems such as large northern forests that grew for years without the presence of these worms. Love them or hate them, earthworms are a large part of the ground beneath our feet. There are over 6,000 classified earthworm species as of the posting of this video. Earthworms are segmented worms and hermaphroditic, though they still need to mate with one another in order to reproduce. Some ideas would have people believe earthworms can regrow if split in pieces, but generally speaking they don't have the kind of regenerative properties as flatworms.
