Posted by Staff of goGardenNow on

An article in Newsbreak by Alissa Rose warns of hammerhead worms. "Recently, a dangerous species of worm called hammerhead worms were found in North Carolina.

"Hammerhead worms have spread across the country due to soil circulation, mainly in greenhouse production, and they have recently been discovered in multiple North Carolina counties.

"This worm belongs to the terrestrial flatworm family. These species are shiny and covered in a slimy material. On the other hand, these flatworms lack the tentacles that slugs have. They may grow up to 12 inches long and have a crescent-shaped head. Hammerheads are often orange, yellow, or brown, with one to multiple stripes along the back."
