Big Earthworms

This weekend, I spent some time outside in the garden. Mostly playing, but I'm going to claim I'm getting the beds ready (still). I have been seeing earthworms, which is a good thing. However, they are bigger than your average worm.

I've seen a few garden snakes, so you can image my worry when I first saw them.

Check out my $1 Good Will yard shoes?! I didn't know worms could get this big until I did some googling. then my huge worm was not so huge any more. Like THIS South African worm that average about 6 feet long!

Has anybody seen this larger than average Texas earthworm? Surely, I'm not alone.
