Horsehair worms are one of the many 'critters' in Sabino Creek. They can be up to 3 feet long and are as thin as - you guessed it - a horse hair. The larvae live as parasites in the guts of beetles, grasshoppers, and other insects. That's a really small space.
Wow, how weird! I've never even heard of these worms before.ReplyDelete
