Do worms survive if you cut them in half?

    This is actually a myth. A worm that loses a part of its body will still survive; in the event of a worm being cut in half, one half will die. The half that survives will burrow itself into soil.

    Patricia is correct. A half may survive, as she mentioned. The wiggling motion of the end that does not survive is simply the last nerve impulses of that part, similar to a chicken running after it’s head is cut off.

    If you cut worm into two, you have helped it reproduce asexually because the two sides will survive and grow into mature worms provided the environment is conducive
