Nothing big today, just a doodle of a superworm. Before I have been feeding these critters to my aquatic turtles (who absolutely love them), I used to think they had a pair of legs on every body segment like a centipede. But looking closer while drawing them, I see they only have six pairs of legs. They only get to be two inches in length. Superworms are larvae that stay in this form for as long as a year and then eventually turn into a darkling beetle.
