Where to buy it


Worms have existed since dinosaurs populated the earth. They can't see because they don't have eyes. In some cultures they are considered delicious and are eaten, while in others they are thought of as disgusting. They are very good for nature so the next time you see one remember to be nice!

Los gusanos existen desde que los dinosaurios poblaban la tierra. Además, no ven porque no tienen ojos y ¡son muy buenos para la naturaleza! En algunas culturas creen que son deliciosos y se los comen, en otras piensan que son desagradables. En definitiva, cuando veas un gusano recuerda ser amable.
