A tiny burrowing creature, found in moist soil. It is legless, long and thin.

Worms are a species of soil-dwelling vermin found in the soil of taiga, temperate, and tropical areas, that can be tamed as pets. While they are very common, the combination of the [VERMIN_SOIL] and [VERMIN_NOTRAP] tokens prevents them from being trappable[Verify].

Some dwarves like worms for their wriggling, but others can "absolutely detest worms" getting unhappy thoughts when they encounter them.

Admired for its wriggling.
