The Movement of an Earthworm

The earthworm moves very differently than humans. The earthworm has circular segments covering it's body. To move the earthworm pushes the segments forward. The worm has rough bristles that it forces onto the ground, holding it in place. The earthworm then contracts the segments together and starts the process over.
