Earthworm or Draining Bathtub?
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, a strange creature that sounds like a draining bathtub.
What creature lives deep underground, has a dark purple head and a blue-grey body, can grow up to nine feet in length and sounds like a bathtub draining of water? It’s the Giant Gippsland earthworm of Australia, of course!
When they move quickly within their burrows, it makes a gurgling sound that sounds a bit like water draining out of a bath and has been known to terrify those who don’t know about them.
Though most of us look at such creatures with disgust, nothing that God has made is without purpose. Earthworms perform a very valuable service in making the soil fertile. Life on earth would not exist without the lowly earthworm! Eternal life, too, wouldn’t exist were it not for Jesus, who is called a worm and was despised by the people He came to save.
