Red Wriggler

Eisenia fetida


I'm a huge fan of composting, and these little guys are my constant helpers, this is the red wriggler worm, E. Fetida. They're native to Europe but have been introduced everywhere but Antarctica. They thrive in organic matter and not soil, which is a rare trait among earthworms.


Native to Europe, introduced worldwide sans Antarctica.
