Weird World, Piles of Worms have gathered along a road in Texas State Park in an effort to escape to higher ground after recent heavy rains and flooding.
The balls of tangled worms, appear to have made their way to the middle of the road, hung around for a couple of days while the floods receded and then returned to the earth. Unfortunately some didn’t make it back and have been squashed by passing cars, leaving a nasty looking mess!
Piles of worms were seen wriggling around after recent record rains and flooding in Texas. The worms stayed around for two days before squirming back down into the the earth, ABC News reported. May was the wettest month of any calendar month in Texas history, when an average of 8.81 inches of rain fell across the state, which translates to more than 35 trillion gallons of water, according to the National Weather Service. Park officials have no definite answer as to how the herd of worms came to be. One theory is the floods saturated the ground so much that the worms wriggled onto the road as it was the nearest dry place they could find. Another theory is that the rain sounded too much like predators so they all clumped together to try and avoid them. Of course, they could just be a new breed of worms specifically designed to exterminate the human race. We may never know.
