|The Toothless Worm
12 Apr 2012
We recently had a question about the reason for sprinkling a hand full of soil into the worm farm with the food scraps.
So here's the answer, worms have a 'gizzard' in their neck, like birds. Worms & birds do not have teeth.
The soil added into worm farms is to ensure that the worms can get
sufficient 'grit', sand and other soil particles to put into their
gizzard with their food, to grind it before it goes into their stomach.
