Dangerous species of worm found in Arkansas

Most people believe that most worms are safe, although a harmful type of worm has been discovered in Arkansas, proving this to be untrue.

The University of Arkansas Department of Agriculture reports that hammerhead worms have been discovered in Greene County since the week of June 13.

According to officials, the potent neurotoxin tetrodotoxin, often found in pufferfish, can be found in hammerhead worms.

He claimed that carnivorous hammerhead worms could recover after being cut in half, producing two worms instead of one.

The broad spade-shaped head and long, flattened body of hammerheads are often used to identify them.

Typically, they reach a height of 8 to 12 inches.
