When I was working by the pond today I noticed a worm(well I think it's a
worm). But it wasn't your regular earthworm. It was VERY skinny and black.
Like the size of a thick horsehair. I wouldn't have known it was a worm if
it hadn't of been moving around like worms do. Anyone have any ideas what
kind of worm it is, and if it's a bad one? I put it in an old coffee can
with some wet dirt because if it was a bad worm, I don't want it
'contaminating' anything, and it's a good worm, I don't wanna kill it.
Medically speaking, yes. Though as I briefly mentioned, I'm not sure if what
I found even was a worm, or something else in an early stage of its life
cycle. I'm used to earthworms being kinda plump and pinkish/somewhat
see-through, not this thin and black.
This is probably a horsehair worm, a good-guy. They are parasites of
grasshoppers, crickets, etc. Go ahead and put it back where you found it!

*looks at picture*...yeah that looks like it. That's a relief, and explains
why it was by the pond...now I'll just have to cover it with some dirt when
I put it back so the chickens/geese don't eat it. Thank you.
