I found one of these interesting "Hammerhead" Worms on my patio step this morning. It's quite funny, when I saw the head of the worm I immediately said it looks like a hammerhead. The funny part is I'm only 9 years old,and I have never heard of one of these worms before! Then my dad and I decided to google it to see what it is and if it was poisonous, and to my surprise we found out it actualy is called a hammerhead worm! And that's our story.
