Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - We have all heard of turtle races, even minnow races, but worms…

Today at the Fargo Public Library, children were able to show up and race worms.

First, they learned about worms and all the amazing things they do. Then, it was off to the races. Like turtles and minnows, the worms often had minds of their own, but the trainers cheered them on to the finish line.

Colten Borden, Worm Champ: “When it was one second his nose popped up in front. He won by a whisker.”

“Want to call it speedy?”

Borden: “No.”

“You don’t want to call it speedy?”

Borden: “No.”

How about this worm trivia. Worms do not have lungs. They breathe through their skin.
