Kill It With Fire!

July 9th, 2009 by Kevin

Well this is just creepy.  It\’s the video from a sewer snake cam in North Carolina that runs across some very bizarre lifeform.  Watch the video first, then jump below the fold for the answer.

Pretty bizarre right?? Looks like a scene out of Alien yeah, just waiting for that eggs to watch and the screeching critter inside to eat the camera?

Well turns out it has a very terrestrial answer.  They are colonies of Tubifex worms, also called sludge worms or sewer worms, that attach themselves to roots that have worked their way into the pipes.  They are moving because they are responding to the heat of the light on the camera.

Still creepy though huh?
