I popped out a frozen cube of them and watched it bob in our African clawed frog's aquarium. They were the frog's dinner. "What? These things?" The red blob hardly looked like a terrifying entity.
"Yeah. They're worse than leeches."
"No kidding?" I said. "How do you know?"
"I saw a video. They have sharp teeth and can suck the blood out of you. That's why they're called blood worms."
I had to see this. So I watched a video.
Are you totally grossed out yet?
Those little buggers are at the very least, quite disgusting! I'm so glad Croaky, our frog eats them. The world is a better place because of him!
