Lugworm Castings

Lugworm Castings
Photographed on the beach at Cape Tribulation, we learned later that these are Lugworm castings. They were several inches tall and were all similar in design. Apparently the worms that makes them are seldom seen unless dug out of the sand as they often are for bait.

Quite a fort with those walls! Lets hope the lugworm sits not inside with a little rifle, watching your every step! ;o)

Well taken. I've always known of them as sandworms. I hope you managed to see someone catching them, Ron, they grow to quite a length.
