Some of you may think at first glance, oh how lame.
Did Andy just take a video of a worm?
But there is something more amazing here than initially meets the eye.
Look carefully at what this simple little worm is doing.
It is inching forward with its sprawling body over the dirt, and it is dragging with it...a feather!
Watch how it moves its body and then see at the top, the sudden pull of the feather behind it--and again and again.
Clearly, this is not an accident, but this worm wants this feather.
Who would think that a worm has the brains to identify, claim, and take with it, a feather.
There are probably a lot bigger brains out there that can't even do half that much. ;-)
