How do earthworms eat?



  1. 0 Votes

    Earthworms pull food into their mouths with the prostomium and the pharynx, creating a suction. Food is stored in their crop (a chamber in the digestive tract) and then ground up into small pieces in their gizzard. Earthworms have no teeth, so they need a gizzard to break down food. Nutrients are absorbed through their small intestine.
