世界上最长、最奇特的蚯蚓








What’s 31 inches long, one inch thick, hasno legs, and slithers through the ground? No, it’s not a snake, it’s anearthworm! The Giant Gippsland, found in Gippsland in south-eastern Australia,is the world’s largest species of earthworms. Fully stretched, it can measureup to two meters in length.

什么东西31英寸长,一英寸厚,没有脚,并在地上爬行的?不,这不是蛇,而是蚯蚓!在澳洲东南部的Gippsland发现的这种巨型Gippsland蚯蚓是世界上最大型的。长度可达两米。

These slithering giants are surprisinglygentle creatures. They are quite hard to spot, spending most of their livesdeep underground. Higher water content in the soil helps them breathe better.Their burrows can be as deep as 3 to 5 feet below the surface. Sometimes, heavyrainfall forces them to emerge out of the dirt. You might find also find theirburrows in places where there’s been a landslip.

这种爬行的巨型动物却异常的温和。要想见到它们着实是难事,大部分时间都呆在地底下。它们能在含水量更多的土壤中呼吸的更好。它们的洞穴可深至地表3到5英尺以下。有时候,暴雨迫使它们爬出土壤。在某些塌方的地方你或许就可以找到它们的洞穴。

They are quite fragile – reckless handlingcan crush and kill them. Only a particular type of moist soil is suitable fortheir survival. If you happen to walk over their water-filled burrows, theywill respond to the vibration of your footsteps. They start to crawl about andmake squelchy noises that are quite easy to hear. So even though the GippslandGiants are pretty rare, you’ll know when they are around.

它们非常的脆弱——一不小心就可以捏死它们。只有某些特定的潮湿土壤才有利于它们的生存。如果你走过它们充满水的洞穴的话,它们就会对你的脚步震动做出反应。这反应就是它们会开始四处爬行并发出响声,很容易就被人听到。所以尽管这种巨型蚯蚓非常稀少,但是当他们出现时你就能察觉到。



Giant Gippslands lay huge egg cocoons thatlook like brown bean pods. They lay only one egg at a time, which takes a wholeyear to hatch. The babies aren’t cute or tiny; they qualify as humongous inearthworm terms at 7 inches long! They don’t grow very rapidly though. It takesthem about five years to reach their maximum length. We do not know exactly howlong they live, but the estimated age of these remarkable creatures is 20years.

它们生的巨型蛋茧就像棕色的豆荚。一次只下一个,要花一整年的时间才能孵出来。小蚯蚓既不可爱也不渺小,在蚯蚓的世界里,它们可算是巨型的了,一生下来就可达7英寸!但是它们的生长速度并不快。要经过5年才能达到他们的极限长度。我们不知道它们的具体寿命有多长,但是据估计有20年的寿命。

Despite their size, the population of theGippsland Giants in Australia is pretty small. The main causes are frequentloss of habitation, along with a slow rate of reproduction. These earthwormshave been labelled ‘vulnerable’ by the International Union for Conservation ofNature Red List of Threatened Species.

尽管体型巨大,但是这种巨型蚯蚓在澳洲也很是稀少。主要原因就是居住地遭到破坏,而且其繁殖率也较慢。国际动物保护组织认为这种巨型蚯蚓是“脆弱的”。
