Discover the tradition of worm grunting, and find out why earthworms come to the surface when they sense vibrations in the earth. In the middle of Florida’s Apalachicola National Forest, a bizarre, almost magical scene is unraveling. Sliding a metal strip over a wooden stake, a master summoner is sending deep croaking noises reverberating throughout the area. And, as if in a trance, hundreds of earthworms begin emerging from the soil. What’s going on? Kenny Coogan explores the tradition known as worm grunting. Lesson by Kenny Coogan, directed by Martina Meštrović.

How do I know if this is true if its a cartoon?
Can you show us how it works with actual proof?
We always think from school level study that darwin just put a hypothesis of evolution it's not actually true there is no definitive proof......but as we grow older we realise how much DARWIN actually studied and worked to put that hypothesis...and yes the proofs exist just before our eyes 👀👁️👀......we r just unable to see it as well as he did.............. after watching this my respect for Darwin has sky rocketed........🙏🙏🙏
I shall be the queen of worms 😼 my classmates shall bow before me
