There she burrows! In the newest episode of the Palouse Giant Earthworm Chronicles, our heroes—University of Idaho annelidologist Jodi Johnson-Maynard (top left circle), and soil scientists Karl Umiker (middle circle) and Yaniria Sanchez-De Leon (bottom circle)—continue their quest to illuminate the mysterious lifestyle of the seldom-seen Northwest native white worm that some reports say can reach 3-feet long. Harnessing modern science, our terrific trio will use DNA tests to dig into what makes this rare worm species unique. Meanwhile, back in the lab lurk two live juvenile worms. Suspected specimens of the lily-scented great-white-wonderworm, both were brought back by our intrepid scientists from a recent expedition near Leavenworth, Wash.
