How Do Worms Breath?

Answer

Worms take in oxygen through their skin as long as they have enough moisture. Too much water will cause them to drown unless the water has a lot of oxygen in it. You can find more information here: http://urbanext.illinois.edu/worms/anatomy/anatomy10.html

When it rains a great deal earthworms seem to come out of the ground and end up on sidewalks or driveways. If it gets sunny and warm quickly after a rain, you will notice the earthworms dry out before they can get back to their hiding spots. An earthworm needs humid conditions in order to survive as they breathe through their skin.
