A reader wrote to us about some small gold worms in Florida that reportedly bite. (More precisely, they are “a hard gold color,” although we’re not sure what the adjective “hard” adds to the color description.) The reader didn’t indicate she had found any of the worms (perhaps explaining why no picture of the worms was submitted), nor did she mention anything about the worms causing her distress or irritation. Indeed, her question was a mere sentence long, consisting only of a straightforward plea for information stripped of any other context. So, what are the small gold worms in Florida that bite?
