28 seconds in... and my guess is earth worms and rolly pollies job is to eat out the metals in the soil that could be harmful to humans. Naturally they are now ionized from it

Hey, Destin! Video suggestion here: Why does a thin stream of water (falling from the faucet for instance) form ripples before touching an object. Surely the surface tension has a role in it, but I can't understand how the molecules interact against the gravity. Greetings from Brazil 🙏

Well, the worm are "eating" the sands and as we know that there are so many "iron" on the sand. Just like when you accidentally dropped your magnet on the ground and some sands are attracted to the magnet. So that "sands" are the reason.

I saw a tik tok where a Man was Using a magnet to pick up iron from dirt. Is it possible there is some iron in/on the worm, where it is enough to be pulled by the magnet?

Before I watch this video, I'm gonna take a guess of why the worm is magnetic. I think it has something to do with the iron rich soil that it lives in.

There is a very simple straitforward explanation: Worms blood is known to cary much more hemoglobin than our own blood and as hemoglobin contain some iron atoms.......

So my initial thought was that the worms found out on the asphalt had ingested a large amount of meteorite dust. One of the things I learned in my Astronomy class back in college was that you could go to a storm drain or any small collection of dirt on the road or top of a parking garage, with a magnet, and pick up perfectly spherical, microscopic bits of iron meteorites. Our planet is being showered with them all of the time, but almost everything that goes through our atmosphere is burned up before it hits the surface and turned to dust. For all the iron that comes from space, that heat and the gravity of the Earth, combined, is enough to turn that iron into a sphere. And that's the fun part about finding them with a microscope. From the sample you grab with your magnet, every little perfect sphere you find under that microscope you can tell, for sure, is a meteorite from outer space :)

It’s because when worms go through the dirt it goes into their digestive system and well we got minerals like iron in the dirt that the magnet picks up that’s probably why the one broke because you pulled it through him/her. But ya that’s my best guess from what prior knowledge I have.

They live their life in dirt. Maybe it's the iron in the dirt infused in the worms or something?? Edit: Typed this before I saw the whole video. Before they mentioned the iron.

Hey guys. Have you talked about this worm "issue" with a professional zoologist? The non magnetic worms seem to look different to me from the magnetic ones - maybe it's got nothing to do with the soil but with the species. I'm not a zoologist or whatsoever - I'm a sport scientist and engineer who knows nothing about animals. However, what I know is that there are such things as magnetosomes - those are small magnetic particles in some living organisms. Migration birds or fish use those magnetosomes to navigate during migration. I can imagine that some worms could be equipped with magnetosomes as well, to navigate underground/ in the dark. Maybe you can go ahead with this small piece of kick-off knowledge and do further experiments or ask a worm specialist ;-) However, I don't know how strong those magnetosomes are and how high the concentration in living organisms is, but I would say that you shouldn't attribute the magnetic effect to the soil at this point of "research" ;-) Best Wishes from Germany Dominic

Worms need to swallow some grit so they can store it in their crops to help digest food. Maybe they swallowed the iron powder on purpose to store the grit.

You could use this in a worm farm and put an electromagnet to pick up the worms or you could use it to find iron in the ground if you find ferromagnetic worms very interesting guys Thanks for posting.
