Finally, A Mystery Solved

Whatever happened to the 3 foot long earthworm that spits and smells like lilies?  It was first described in 1897 and hasn’t been seen since the 1980s.

The idea of a giant, white, perfumed earthworm churning its way through the prairies of Idaho has captured imaginations, and the project has received a lot more news media attention than comparable worm studies.”

Turns out it’s only about 1 foot long and doesn’t smell like lilies or spit.
