She and her grandad dug these worms up in his garden a week or so ago. They are still in this bucket being fed old coffee grinds and cornmeal. She checks on them when we visit and calls grandad when we don't to make sure he is checking on them.
And she does like other animals not just these. Are worms really animals or what? I have purposefully forgotten my science classifications of insects/worms etc, as I dislike them. They give me the willies.
