Redworm (Eisenia fetida)

Series of top view illustrations of the Redworm

The Redworm (Eisenia fetida) is an earthworm species adapted to decaying organic material. They are also known under various common names like Tiger Worm, Panfish Worm, Trout Worm, and Red Wiggler Worm. The species does well in rotting vegetation, compost, and manure, and they are active above the soil level, and rarely found in it. The Redworm is native to Europe, and it has been introduced to every continent except for Antarctica. They are mainly used for vermicomposting of both domestic and industrial organic waste, and if roughly handled, the Redworm will exude a pungent liquid.

The Redworm has an overall length between 1.18”-5.12” (3-13 cm), diameter of .12”-.2” (3-5 mm), and weight of .009-.013 lb (4-6 g). The typical lifespan of the Redworm is between 2-5 years.
