VIDEO: Clumps of earthworms in a straight line in middle of Texas road baffle USA
It could might as well be a scene from a horror movie - the sight that greeted park authorities in Texas on a road at Eisenhower State Park on May 29th.

After the area was hit by floods, hundreds of earthworms appeared along the way. Many of them were lumped together in huge clumps. Now everybody scratch their head and wonder: What on earth is going on?

Park rangers in Texas were left scratching their heads after coming across hundreds of earthworms in evenly spaced piles in the middle of a road.

The rangers initially thought that someone had left piles of spaghetti between the yellow dividing lines in the middle of the road at Eisenhower State Park on Friday — but closer inspection showed the clumps were alive.

"We're still puzzled why they decided to line up in the middle of the road," Park Superintendent Ben Herman said.

"Even our biologist doesn't know why they're spaced so well and in the line."

One theory is that heavy rains forced the worms out of the earth and onto dry ground.

It has been suggested that the invertebrates were found in clumps because the pounding rain may have sounded like a predator and the worms stuck together for a better chance of survival.

Mr Herman said the phenomenon was not witnessed at other parks in the vicinity.

"We were all fascinated by what happened," he said.

"It was pretty entertaining to watch the worms do their thing.
