Mysterious Live ‘Worm Balls’ Appear in Texas

What in tarnation?

What in tarnation?

That’s a lot of bait right there.

Texas wildlife officials at Eisenhower State Park are stumped by the appearance of large, living worm balls that have started congregating on park roads. Officials speculate that recent rains may have brought to worms to the surface, but have no idea why the creatures decided to group together in clumps. Are they working together to better survive intense rainfall? Is it some kind of mating ritual? Are they summoning Shai-Hulud from the arid world of Arrakis?

Some experts say the worms are actually communicating through touch, although what more they could say other than “here, have some slime,” we can’t exactly tell.

What do you think?
