Lumbrice Circulatoria

Earthworms have closed Circulatory systems, which consist of aortic arches, dorsal and ventral blood vessels. The aortic arches are like human hearts, and Earthworms have 5 pairs of them. The aortic arches have the responsibility of pumping blood into the dorsal and ventral blood vessels. The dorsal blood vessels carry blood to the front of the Earthworms' body while the ventral blood vessels carry blood to the back.
