Dear "worm-charmer" Juraj, how long did you have to wrestle with it before being able to take the picture? Click the image to open in full size.

My Grandfather used to raise nightcrawlers by the hundreds that size! I used to take them out and play with them. He would say "Put 'em back, you'll dry 'em out!" Of course, he was right.Click the image to open in full size.

These worms are widespread in Russia. I breed them without problems!

These are really monsters. When you say you "breed" them, Alex, how do you keep them? Do they reproduce quickly?

These are not really monsters, because really monsters have length 30 cm! (from Russian books, I don't see) I keep them in the plastic box.
They don't reproduce quickly...but eat a lot. I work with them for the worm-culture!

I agree with you Alex,
i have plenty of these worms
Click the image to open in full size., and these exceed 30cm(not stretched out), but occasionally i dig out individuals much bigger!!
It is so wet were i find them that they will probably go aquatic in a couple of million years
