There’s an old saying: ‘Small things amuse small minds’. Well, this small mind was wonderfully amused for at least 30 minutes yesterday wandering along my local beach checking out small piles of poo.

220303 lugworms (1)

These are the casts of Lugworms (or Sandworms) (Arenicola marina). They live in burrows in the sand, sucking in sand at one end, filtering out tiny edibles (of animal or dead matter) in the middle, and excreting the unwanted sand at the other end. I liked their poo patterns!
