Phil Torres, self-proclaimed "Jungle Dweller" and host of The Jungle Diaries on YouTube, spends his time talking about and videotaping the various creepy-crawlers that would make you scream if you ever encountered them in real life. While in Ecuador a few weeks ago, Torres found a one-pound earthworm that he has no problem grabbing and putting right up to his face, because he is brave. Much braver than you.

According to the video, earthworms like this one can grow up to seven feet, at which point they should just probably be renamed mouthless snakes. Ultimately, earthworms might seem a bit creepy to those who don't particularly like enormous invertebrates, but they are completely harmless.
