This article is about an older version of DF.
A gigantic version of its tiny cousin, this long, slimy creature tunnels through the rocks deep underground.

Giant earthworms are colossal annelids, burrowing through rock and stone. They are also exceptionally rare.

Gigantic is an understatement -- a worm corpse of merely average weight is around 1700 kilograms. Giant earthworms are also far faster than one might guess an earthworm to be. Their lack of sharp corners and edges makes them not especially dangerous. However because of their lack of body parts they can be difficult to kill by severing.

Some dwarves admire them "for their awesome presence."
