The earthworm

Snails, slugs and worms

Earthworms, known as 'rainworms' in Denmark, are not all that happy when it rains.

They appear in significant numbers after heavy rain, simply to escape drowning in their underground passages.

Conversely, they cannot tolerate dry weather, so the Danish summer can be somewhat of a challenge for the earthworm.
