Giant Gippsland Earthworm (Megascolides australis)

Set of scaled top view drawings of the Giant Gippsland Earthworm

The Giant Gippsland Earthworm (Megascolides australis) is an earthworm species native to Australia. They occupy deep burrow systems that require water to respire; these are located in the subsoil of blue, gray, or red clay soils along stream banks in Gippsland in Victoria, Australia. The Giant Gippsland Earthworm is usually very sluggish, but when they move quickly through their burrows, they make an audible gurgling or sucking sound. Unlike other earthworms that deposit castings on the surface the Giant Gippsland Earthworm spends all their time in burrows and deposit their castings there.

The Giant Gippsland Earthworm has an overall length between 3.28’-9.84’ (1-3 m), diameter of .79”-1.18” (2-3 cm), and weight of .44-.88 lb (.2-.4 kg). The typical lifespan of the Giant Gippsland Earthworm is between 10-20 years.
