Fact or Fiction
If you cut a worm in half, each half will grow back into a complete worm.
If you cut a worm in half, you will most likely end up with two halves of a dead worm. However, some species of worms can re-grow a new tail if it is cut off (or more likely, eaten by a bird). While it is possible that the head half of the worm may grow a new tail, the tail half will not grow a new head — so you’re unlikely to end up with more worms than you started with.
Reason to party today – coz it’s happy hour somewhere in the world.
